ACT OF KINDNESS A mother asked anyone with a Harley Davidson around Bunbury to pop by McDonalds to surprise her son on his 13th birthday. Zane, who has cerebral palsy, loves motorbikes and was extremely happy to see almost 100 motorbikes! (Video: Mel Max)

As I write this I am sitting on the steps of GPO with tears in my eyes and I feel a lot of things... afraid is not one of them. I feel beyond sad for those who lost loved ones yesterday. I can feel our collective hearts are broken and it fills me with sorrow. I feel pride for those Melburnians who yesterday came to the aid of complete strangers in there time of need and put themselves in harms way to try and save their lives. And for the two boys who tried to stop the driver outside of Flinders street with baseball bats... you're heroes in my book. I am so thankful to the paramedics and ambos and doctors and nurses who worked to save people's lives for hours on end. I feel thankful to the police who day after day put themselves in harms way. They are always faced with tough choices and I could never do there job and yesterday must of been amongst their toughest... Most of all I feel heartbroken for four gorgeous Humans who were taken far, far too early... absolutely heartbroken. At a time like now it is easy to be angry and look for someone to blame, but really, there is only one person to blame. I hope we can all remember that. So I sit here as people start to drop flowers off with tears flowing freely down their face and I refuse to let this define our city and I certainly refuse to be afraid. We are not defined by the actions of one man but by the actions of the many Humans who showed our city's true colours yesterday. We don't get to choose when tragedy comes into our lives, we only get to choose how we react when it does. So let's care for those who need it so much right now and look after one another. If you see someone struggling today give them a hug and let them know it's going to be ok. We will be ok.
