Iconic 'Sorry' Speech To Stolen Generation Will Be Remembered Next Week

It's been almost a decade since former prime minister Kevin Rudd gave a speech that hoped to change the lives of Australia's indigenous people forever. 

In front of 100 members of the stolen generation,  Rudd said 'sorry' for the grief, suffering and loss past governments bestowed upon indigenous Australians - particularly to those whose lives had been wrecked by the practice of forced child removal.
