"I implore you: Speak the names of those who were lost, rather than the name of the man who took them. He may have sought notoriety, but we in New Zealand will give him nothing, not even his name." – New Zealand Prime Minister #JacindaArdern.#NewZealandTerroristAttack pic.twitter.com/4P4J0YiarQ

(Warning – wrenching video below the fold)
Keep in mind the population of NZ is only 5 million, so this attack killed roughly the same proportion of their population as 9/11 did to ours
There are roughly 50k Muslims Kiwis, so this killed 1/1000 of them
Most people are not truly comprehending the horror and scale of this https://t.co/oLQRxCXzs1

Deplatform terrorists and instead share this—a video of human beings saving human beings with courage and compassion.
This is powerful. #NewZealandStrong
