A Day of Great Sadness!
Last Friday, 20 January 2017 began like any other Melbourne summer’s day. People working, tourists enjoying the city’s offerings, families shopping and friends meeting up. That was all wiped out so quickly with the horrific actions of one individual. The horror and sheer unthinkable violence brought our great city to a blinding holt.
Out of this tragedy great love and care shone through so many people. The love for each other cocooned Melbourne and began the slow healing for so many. We will never understand how or why this happened but we will always remember that as one we helped and comforted the injured, supported those present and embraced each other as Melbournians.
We are people of many different beliefs and cultures but we are all the same.
