I’ve not ever written a letter to the editor of a newspaper before, but this morning I sent off the following to the letters editor at the Sydney Morning Herald, in the wake of the Martin Place siege here in Sydney. Such sadness for the loss of innocent lives, and for the terror inflicted on the hostages and negotiators involved. Anyway, I’m not expecting it to be published, but I thought I would share it all with you here too. Yes, let there be light….
Along with all Sydneysiders, I awoke yesterday with a very sad heart, to learn of the tragic outcome of the Martin Place siege. Like many others, I have been wondering since, what is the point of it all, what is the lesson to be learnt here?
