New Zealand has experienced a tragedy that has shaken us and many throughout the world. Our beautiful city of Christchurch who has been through so much and continues to be in recovery from the devastating earthquakes 8 years ago has once again experienced profound loss. Our hearts go out to our Muslim communities, their families and friends and all affected by this tragedy.
Through our shock, disbelief, sadness, and grief, New Zealand has responded with an outpouring of love and compassion, reaching out to one another and embracing our New Zealand Muslim people.
This is how we responded as a nation led by our Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern
Love is the only way forward, for us, our children, humanity and our earth.
