Whenever these horrific atrocities happen I feel lost for words. That they happen so frequently leaves me further dumbstruck. I sat and watched the rolling news come through last night and the early hours feeling so numb. I haven't the words again today; all I have is thoughts and those thoughts are with the families of the victims and those people injured and receiving treatment as I type.
I do think it's right that election campaigning should continue as soon as possible. I know it's not a popular view, but these murderers (and that's exactly what they are, I think we do them a favour sometimes in calling them terrorists, like it legitimises or makes sense of their cause and actions somehow) want to destroy democracy and we simply cannot allow that to happen.
