I wanted to take an extra moment today to acknowledge the tragic deaths of Katrina Dawson and Tori Johnson, both of whom lost their lives in the siege that took place here in Sydney yesterday. They should not have died. And yet they did. Words cannot describe how heavy my heart is, nor can I fathom what their loved ones must be going through right now. My thoughts and prayers are with their families and their friends. As a mother myself, I feel especially heartbroken for Katrina's three young children and for Tori's parents. No doubt in the coming months, the media will move onto other more 'current' stories. But these families - their pain and their grief will continue, even when the rest of us has moved on and forgotten.
Let's all keep praying, for as long as we can remember.
