Is there no more news on this event?

A death like this on NK is a big deal but it’s like they want this event to disappear.

Thank you for publishing the victims race. This is really important if we want to continue the division in this country.


So, this is the real terrorism. Not overseas, but right here at home. When I taught school, one big mistake that I made was to succumb to the idea that success was defined by people leaving home and making it big elsewhere.

Success in North Kingston might well be defined by the number of fine, good-hearted people who step up, kindly and evenly, against the prevailing domestic terrorism.
