Terrorism will not defeat New Zealanders – we Kiwi will resist it all. Proud of our Prime Minister, Jacinda Adern, this speech will become the benchmark for other leaders to follow – no autocue, just straight from the heart.
My Monday morning walk today was to visit the local Wellington Masjid – three days after the terrible terrorism in Christchurch at the Al Noor Mosjid resulting in fifty deaths – and still, people, all over New Zealand, Kiwi are coming to pay respects, to offer help and leave flowers.

I’ll let the photos do the talking of the Wellington Islamic Centre, Kilbirnie Mosque
To put this into some numeric perspective – with a population of under 5 million, these fifty deaths in New Zealand is the equivalent of 3500 people dying in a country the size of the USA.

The Kiwi spirit is indestructable – and those of us in other places, will continue to learn from that. Our hearts
are heavy for those who have suffered such unexpected loss and those who live in fear. Thank you for your special tribute – the photos do speak for themselves.
