Wot No Apology?

So today we remember a group of young children, forcibly removed from their homes by the government, sent to live miles away in the care of complete strangers. Taken away from their families, their own culture, their own spirituality, their own environment. Some were put to work by their new guardians. There was abuse, loneliness, despair and misery and none of these children knew where it would end.

So how come they're not asking for millions in compensation and an apology? How come they're not completely defined by this event and reduced to snivelling, whining shadows of their former selves? Strange eh?
