It was so shocking to hear of a hostage situation in my heart home Australia and then I was so saddened to hear of the senseless loss of life of 2 innocent people. I was stunned to learn that the hero of this horrific situation, Tori Johnson, was the nephew of our dear friends who told me:
"We just want everyone to know what a beautiful, good, gentle, kind, soft spoken person Tori was - the very antithesis of this act of violence. The loss is immeasurable - But so is the love he left behind."
I send my love and condolences to both families - and pray for love and peace .
