It's a very sad day. Heart hurts for the innocent victims and their families and everyone involved in this horrific incident. Heart hurts for the police who had to deal with an unimaginably intense situation as best they could, in a matter of seconds. Heart hurts trying to figure how our justice system deemed this man worthy of bail. Heart hurts trying to justify how supposedly reputable media outlets treat this as disaster porn, and wrongly trying to blame it on a terrorist threat to stir up a hate fueled frenzy..
But my heart swells with pride at the way so many young Australians flatly refused to buy into hate, and instead showed love and compassion for other innocent people who were being targeted. My social media was overflowing with that sentiment. How fucking awesome is that. #IllRideWithYou
RIP Tori Johnson and Katrina Dawson.
