Hate and Intolerance

As I write this, it hasn't even been 24 hours since our little country was rocked by a horrible act of terrorism. I think most New Zealanders, including me, lived in a bubble thinking that this was the type of thing that happened elsewhere in the world, not in peaceful New Zealand.

I am in shock. My sister drove past one of the mosques that was shot up about 20mins before things started happening. It's so close to home that it's terrifying.

I worry about what the future holds for my little girl. Why is there so much intolerance and hate?

My heart goes out to those people who were affected by this atrocity. Kia kaha.

Thoughts about the future

I see all the pictures and videos of children Patricia's age and younger doing things that she should have been doing months ago.

I wonder what the future will hold for our little family.

Will she walk? Will she see? What extra challenges are there going to be for us?

I believe everything happens for a reason and this little Princess was sent to us for a reason. We are capable of dealing with everything that life throws at us. But it is hard. I won't deny it. We'll get there.
