It’s been less than a week since the horrific attacks at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand took place last Friday (15th March), killing a total of 50 people.

The attacks were quickly deemed as an act of terrorism by New Zealand prime minister Jacinda Ardern, who also called the day of the attacks one of the country’s darkest days.

Words of condolences and support for the victims’ families and the Muslim community soon came flooding in from all corners of the globe, with world leaders condemning the attacks as well.

The New Zealand prime minister also became the first signatory of a national condolence book opened in Wellington earlier on Monday (18th March). According to ABC News, she reportedly wrote in the book,

“On behalf of all New Zealanders, we grieve together. We are one. They are us.”

“Get your girls friends, your sisters, your work colleagues, your sports team, your school, your church together and share a photo of you in your scarves so we can show the world that WE ARE ONE.”
