I feel numb.
I feel scared.
I feel helpless.
But you will not change me.
You are terrifying.
You are paralysing.
You are unfathomable.
But you are not the norm.
It feels like you’re on our doorstep.
It feels like you’ve ripped away our comfort zone.
It feels like we are putting our families at risk.
But we will keep going.
You are horrific.
You are painful.
You shatter people’s worlds.
But there’s so much more good than evil.
For our children, we need to face our fears.
For those who threaten to take it, we need to exert our freedom.
For those people who lost their lives, we need to live ours…
