'The Darkest Day'

My heart is filled with sadness
On New Zealand's "darkest day,"
When so many lives were lost and hurt
In places where they went to pray.

To all families affected,
Their friends and helpers too,
The First responders and Medical teams,
Stay strong - we're thinking of you.

Good people let us stand as one -
Not let terrorists destroy our world.
If we stand close together -
A peaceful world can be unfurled.

 -  Florence Stopps (82), South Australia
