Diary: Pride in Unity

Despite the clashes of the previous month or two, I recieved a facebook message from one of the girls I used to know (who was part of Nightshift) she knows about the current crisis going on right now here in Sydney and hope that I am safe and that all is well, reading this single message from her gave me a big smile.

We are less than 10 days until Christmas and everyone should be having that feeling of festivity and joy, also she informed me of this hashtag that went viral in the last three hours alone. A user named Sir Tessa started up #Illridewithyou, a sense of Australians unity no matter your race or religion to come together and stand strong- that this event in Martin Place would not make us fear each other or be scared to go out in the public but show we are a strong and defiant country.

Happy to say how proud I am to be born Australian and living here that it takes a single hashtag to bring everyone together, I just hope it continues and not just the latest trend.
