As the #sydneysiege enters its 13th hour I just want to say that my thoughts and prayers are with the 15 or so hostages in the Lindt Cafe in Martin Place, and their families and friends.
And I am immensely proud to be living in Australia where such a huge display of anti-prejudice has broken out with the #illridewithyou Twitter campaign.
I won’t be on public transport tomorrow, but if I was, and indeed the next time I do, #illridewithyou and proudly.
Update: Wednesday 17 December 2014 – My heart goes out to the friends and families of Katrina Dawson and Tori Johnson, the two hostages that didn’t make it out of the Lindt Cafe on Martin Place in the early hours of yesterday morning. My hopes were for such a different ending.
