May this stunning image of Sydney's Central Business District, as seen from the Botanical Gardens on Farm Cove, be a positive reminder to us all of what a truly beautiful city Sydney is. This photo was taken on one of Sydney's glorious, sparkling, sunny days. A day similar to yesterday, when the horrors of the siege in Martin Place unfolded, right there in the CBD. Hard to believe such a magnificent setting could host an event so horrific in its magnitude. Our hearts go out to those who died, cafe manager Tori Johnson and lawyer Katrina Dawson, and to their families and loved ones. We Sydneysiders are a brash, outgoing, resilient lot. We will get over this and we will move on. Vale Tori and Katrina.
