Yesterday, forty-nine fellow inhabitants of our world were murdered while they were worshiping in Mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand. The madness of this act is unfathomable. The fact that it happened in New Zealand is deeply saddening. New Zealand ranks number two in the Global Peace Index.

At times like this our hearts can get very dark and the darkness can be infectious. While we mourn the loss, we must not succumb to a hopeless apathy for the state of our world.

  1. !!!! Great inspirational post, dear Anne-Christine! To remember that we must follow our way & to believe in the better of the world! Have a nice week-end in your charming Narnia forest!

It eas said this morning he had only been in Australia for 45 days in the last ten years or so. He has been travelling all through Europe apparently. Not sure of the implications of this yet.
