New Zealand is in mourning and finding it difficult to mentally process a barbaric act.

New Zealand and particularly Christchurch is beset with grief as a consequence of last Friday’s act of extreme terrorism which caused fifty people to be killed and fifty others to be injured.

In times such as these, it is critical to deal with matters in a calm and rational manner and the salient words of New Zealand commentator Chris Trotter will hopefully serve as a clarion call to all Kiwis;

“What happened at the Linwood and Al Noor mosques was horrific, but it wasn’t our doing. As we begin the long journey towards recovery, it is vitally important that we keep that fact squarely before us. New Zealand is a good place. New Zealanders are good people. We are not responsible for Brenton Tarrant’s dreadful crime. This is not us.”
