When I saw the news from New Zealand on Friday, the cracks in my heart widened. I know something of what the Christchurch community is going through because my community went through something similar.
CHRISTCHURCH, New Zealand – They had walked that once innocuous stretch of sidewalk side-by-side so many times. Every Friday, Yasir Amin and his dad had ambled along the path toward the mosque where they prayed together in peace, a routine so serene and so ordinary that Amin was nearly blinded by confusion when the man drove up with the gun. Amin and his father, Muhammad Amin Nasir, were just 200 meters from the Al Noor mosque on Friday when everything went wrong. They had no idea that a white supremacist had just slaughtered at least 41 people inside the mosque’s hallowed halls, or that more people would be killed at a second mosque soon after. All they knew was that a car that had been driving by had suddenly stopped. And a man was leaning out the car’s window, pointing a gun at them.
Alleged gunman Brenton Harrison Tarrant, a 28-year-old Australian, on Saturday entered no plea to one count of murder related to the massacre at two New Zealand mosques on Friday.
