Oh...my old war wound? I got that at The Battle of Dorking. Very nasty affair that was, I can tell you.

It wasn't entirely out of the blue, though police and other agencies insist they had no idea. Its a relief that the rest of New Zealand has wrapped itself around our  Muslim community in support.  The depth of the tragedy  hasn't sunk in yet for many.

May all remember the many and varied contributions of those who have gone and the effects they have had on the lives of others. Let them be the news and not the acts of those who denounce the worldwide diversity of our cultures.

Hugs for all.

What a time for New Zealand, and what a time for the world.
We are New Zealand. We are the world.

Do we know if any of our community is caught up in this tragedy?

The word pagan came from paganus , who mean peasant . Its was a way to significate than christianism was the religion of the elite and paganism the one of the savage worker class.

''Trickster shows us how we trick OURSELVES. Her rampant curiosity backfires, but, then, something NEW is discovered (though usually not what She expected)! This is where creativity comes from—experiment, do something different, maybe even something forbidden, and voila! A breakthrough occurs! Ha! Ha! We are released! The world is created anew! Do something backwards, break your own traditions, the barrier breaks; destroy the world as you know it, let the new in.''

Absolutely not! This horror was brought to your shores from outside! In a way meant to shock and promote hate worldwide online. We must stand firm!

Your strength and community spirit in times like this is what defines you, not the actions of someone who will not be part of any community.

 The awful thought is that  the Internet is a new and vast platform for madmen who believe they can gain and audience and celebrity  by the most degraded means.

He had  been live streaming his intentions, showed off his weapons and gained a following. He live streamed his entire attack on social media.

 I fear that this could become a disturbed "aspiration" for the deranged.

Deepest sympathy to all those affected by this terrible event. It seems these are dark times the world over; the only hope is that all civilised people can stand together and say a resounding no to the haters and perpetrators of violence.

Yours,
Miranda.
