A-salaam-alaikum Mr Speaker,
Our nation's heart is broken. My heart is broken today.
Five days on, as the wound is still fresh, we have comfort in all the love. All over our country. I have seen the outpouring of grief. I’ve stood with communities as we wrapped our arms around one another. We gathered at mosques, we held each other at vigils, we held our little ones a little tighter as we remembered that little Mucad Ibrahim at 3 years old was one of the victims on Friday.
The city of Dunedin ran out of flowers on Saturday. They were all at the mosque.
