A cowardly attack by someone armed with an automatic weapon against innocent, unarmed people on their knees in prayer.
What chance did these peaceful people have?

The perpetrator livestreamed innocent peoples last moments of life as he murdered them, how low can a human being go?

Human being is too good a word, calling him one casts a shadow over all of humanity who find this utterly deplorable. This coward is a monster.

Apparently according to his manifesto the thought that a little out of the way place like New Zealand was immune to this kind of thing, was precisely the reason why Christchurch, New Zealand was *chosen* for this attack.

This coward of a perpetrator wanted that people felt that nowhere in the world was safe.

R.I.P. the poor souls who only wanted to pray peacefully: you didn’t in any way, shape or form deserve this.

My condolences, thoughts and prayers go out to the families and friends of the victims: our tears flow with yours, we feel angry and outraged, disturbed that this awful thing has happened.

We want to show unity, we want to let you know that you do not stand alone in this terrible moment of darkness.

I do not utter the name of the coward who did this: let his name be deleted from the history books, let his name be nothing but a redacted black rectangle on the page.

Let instead the spotlight of these days and history be shone on the victims of this rampage and the good things they were doing in their lives and in this world. Let us grieve for them together, let us show solidarity, let us be the shoulder you can cry on, the one you can talk to, the one with whom we can share prayers.

It’s not:us” and “them

It is:You‘ and “Me‘, and we together are Kiwi’s (Readers may insert the name of your people here.) no matter where we live. Stay strong brothers and sisters. When enough good people stand united, fear and hate will never bring us down. Not when we know that no matter what happens, our mates have our back. We are all in the same boat. Let us always steer towards Peace.
