We have lost a number of our own citizens, in an attack we thought we’d never see here in our city.
But the values we held dear yesterday we hold dear today. They are the values of freedom, democracy and harmony.
They defined us yesterday. They define us today. They will define us tomorrow.
Our first thoughts and prayers are with the innocent victims their families and friends of this vicious, horrendous attack.
I want to say to their family and friends, everyone in NSW stands beside you.
I pay tribute to the men and women of the NSW Police who saved many lives during this horrific event and risked their lives in doing so. I also want to pay tribute to all other emergency services workers and authorities who provided vital assistance.
My thoughts remain with those hostages who have been freed. Every care they need at this traumatic time will be made available to them.
We are a peaceful, harmonious society that is the envy of the world.
How we react in coming days will show who we are. We will come through this.
While we grieve, we must go about our usual lives and we must come together like never before. We are stronger together and we will get through this together.
