It is a sad day in Ottawa, Canada today. 😦 I have called this city my home for the past 34 years and I love being Canadian.

Today a gunman this morning opened fire on a Canadian solider for no reason, killing him while he was standing guard at our war memorial. Just senseless. Then the gunman proceeded to enter our Parliament Buildings and tried to do even more damage before he was killed.

Why am I in shock? These things don’t happen in Canada! It was a scary and sad situation today in my home town. 35 million Canadians are in shock and are heartbroken over the loss of CPL. Nathan Cirillo.

Just a senseless act of hate. But rest assured, Canadians are strong and we will not let them win. Rest in peace Nathan Cirillo.
