Thank you for your thoughts

I think all New Zealanders are struggling with something like this happening in our country and particularly in Christchurch that has suffered so much in the last 8 years or so from the earthquakes

My son's work is close to where one of the 'alleged' offenders was apprehend, his work along with all schools and may other offices in Christchurch were in lockdown for over four hours

As he drove home he got to see the bomb squad robot approaching the 'alleged' offender's vehicle, it has been confirmed that there was an IED in the vehicle that has since been disarmed

Unbelievable. When I first heard my first thought was " in N. Zealand?. That can't be right"

Very very sad  and truly shocked

Words fail me.....it is as our PM put it "One of New Zealand's darkest days"  Sad Sad Sad

Please say a prayer for all those departed and never let this happen again anywhere.

I am not usually that philosophical, but tonight a bit of Tennyson seems to sum it up well:

"Though much is taken, much abides; and though we are not that strength that which in olden days moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are.

One equal temper of heroic hearts, made weak by time and fate, but strong in will. To strive, to seek to find and not to yield"   


Kia Kaha!!

Desperate news. The worry now is not only for the recovery of the injured, and for the families of the deceased and injured, but what this may mean for the future safety of New Zealanders. Thankfully, the sensible and resolute human beings outnumber the insane ones and as long as that lasts there is hope.

From someone 'across the ditch' I am horrified by what has occurred - even more so that it may be one of ours that has been behind it. 

My thoughts are tonight with all Kiwis and especially with those who have lost their lives.

Glad they're OK. If there IS a god, he'll have to answer for the ones he chose not to save, however.

The worst part : he livestreamed his attack on internet. The videos is around. Not intending to ever watch it.
And he used " memes " music and said " subscribe to Pewdiepie " before the massacre. : that's the level of madness we are facing.

Someone said " Humanity wasn't ready for internet. "

Shocked, saddened but, sadly in this day and age, not surprised.

That was  deeply unnecessary, I'll leave it there.
