The forced removal of so many Aboriginal children from their mothers, families and communities inflicted profound grief, suffering and loss that continues to affect them, their communities and descendants.
In 1998, Kerry Fletcher wrote the Sorry Song , on behalf of all of us whose hearts ache when we think of the pain those children and communities suffered and the pain which they still endure today.
The Sorry Song is regularly performed at the annual WA Sorry Day event, as well as having been performed at events marking the National Apology to the Stolen Generations in 2008.
