Kussie, Pearl and baby Vaan attended the inaugural Remembering and Healing event at the Rotunda in Lismore on Saturday.
It was the first time Lismore has recognised the celebration and commemoration.
Former member of the SAS regiment RJ Poole shared how he was acculturated toward accepting violence and aggression as a natural part of being male.
Mr Poole acknowledged the women in his life who have guided him to emphasise love and compassion.
‘Much of the cause of peace lies in how we raise and educate our male children. If I can make the changes I have then there is hope for everyone.’
