Late last night I saw the Christchurch news breaking as I reviewed posts for the Discover timeline. It was such a shock. This morning I woke up to read the latest updates and the shock is even greater. You know that feeling when you first wake up, and you wonder if some bad news was a dream?

We don’t keep stats here, but in my experience, we have quite a high proportion of Kiwis in our small community. I feel so sad for them today, and for all the Muslim community that is so senselessly attacked.

In the face of such horror, I feel I have nothing to add today. So I am taking a day off. Thanks to Sameer for posting these photos of his mosque.
