THUNDER BAY – INTERNATIONAL NEWS – World leaders are taking to Twitter to express their thoughts on the terrorist attack in Christchurch New Zealand that has led to the death of 49 Muslims at two Mosques in the city.

New Zealand Prime Minister Rt Hon Jacinda Ardern says, “What has happened in Christchurch is an extraordinary act of unprecedented violence. It has no place in New Zealand. Many of those affected will be members of our migrant communities – New Zealand is their home – they are us.”

No Room for Hate in our World

These attacks on innocent people – in this case, innocent people engaged in prayer at their Mosque presents an evil our world can do without.

As inhabitants of this small sphere travelling around the sun, we are all, under the stars part of the human race. It should be what unites us, not what divides us.

From here in Thunder Bay, where we have seen the horrible impact of racism and hate, led to crimes, we need to all focus on that which unites us rather than on what divides us.

The people of New Zealand and the world are in the hearts of all of us at NetNewsLedger today and every day. We can, and we must do better.
