In 2008, after the final resting place of HMAS Sydney had been found, relatives of the crew were offered a place in the Anzac Day march. My grandfather was a stoker on the ship when it went down, so I organised my position in the march. But for reasons I can't remember, I didn't turn up. Five days later I was hit by a car while crossing the road, and it kind of ruined my year. I am not religious at all, but it kind of seemed as though it was my penalty for lack of respect.
It is just an interesting thought that occasionally pops into my head. I am not punishing myself in any way, except perhaps on occasions when I think of the operations that I will need some years down the track.

'hit by a car while crossing the road, and it kind of ruined my year'
I can understand that. But there is no-one out there punishing us; we punish ourselves. Time to stop punishing yourself.
