CAIRNS TRAGEDY  

This is just the saddest tragedy at the end of one of the toughest weeks for our nation.

 

To the people who knew, loved and lost these beautiful children, none of us can imagine your pain, but all of us are with you in your grief.

 

How something like this could occur is beyond anyone’s comprehension.
There is no greater evil than the killing of children.

 

This is a time for all of us to tell the people we care for, how much we love them.

 

Go home, hug your children, call your parents - because life is too short and too fragile.

 

Our thoughts are also with the Queensland Police officers and paramedics who are responding to this horrendous situation.

 

The people of Cairns are at a loss to understand what has happened and how such a tragedy could have been avoided.
