I am the mother of a helper. Someone whose profession means he runs towards trouble, not from it. I have had to adjust to that. When he was a teenager, going out, we'd always say watch out for trouble, look after yourself, walk away. Like so many of you yesterday I watched the hostage crisis unfold in Sydney. Tears. Anger. Fear. The faces of those girls fleeing, terror chasing their footsteps. And then the news this morning of the police storming in, gunfire, death. Courage. The young café manager who risked all for those around him. And those police and emergency workers who despite their best efforts could not save everyone. @edenland posted this on her instagram
and it made me think of this: Remember the power of love and creation will always triumph over the power of destruction and revenge. —Walter Mikac. It will always triumph. #blessthehelpers
