There was a shooting at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand. The Bangladesh National Cricket Side was in town for a test match. I hope they’re safe.

The perpetrator is an avowed white racist, not a Muslim. 49 people were killed.

Every time a shooting like this occurs, any murder really, part of me dies too. A little bit of hope that we really are rational, sensitive, loving creature shrivels up, withers away. Maybe that’s necessary.
