Today, like so many other people, I’m bursting with anger and sadness.
For what was allowed to happen in Orlando, and for the recent tragedies in Syria and Istanbul. A lot of terrible things have gone on, and I think that this Tuesday more than most, we all need a little more Trust In Humanity.
I’m not going to pretend that focussing on the nice stuff will make all the bad go away – it’s going to take a lot more than a case of the warm and fuzzies to fix all this – but it’s still important to remember that there is still so, so much good and in the words of John Oliver: “that terrorist dipshit is vastly outnumbered.”
So for this Trust In Humanity Tuesday I’m throwing it back to Friday, when I attended Brisbane’s LUMINOUS Lantern Parade and thousands of people turned up for a lovely evening to welcome Queensland’s newest arrivals and celebrate our diversity – check out the photos below.
