Tip for Australia: keep your lipsticks in the fridge or they will get sweaty ;(

I'm in Australia and I just wanted to let the rest of the world know how the media and public are dealing with things here. I have huge respect for the way the media is handling the events that took place here yesterday. They are intentionally making it very clear that the gunman acted alone, and showing that he was not a part of the majority of the muslim community here. I have seen several news interviews taken with the Australian muslim womens association, Australian muslim refugee leader and members of the Australian muslim public who have been very specifically chosen for interviews with the news channels to reiterate this message.

As for public reaction, it has been astoundingly amazing. 150,000 Australians within just 4 hours had already shared the ‪#‎illridewithyou‬ hashtag online, showing support for the muslim community and offering to take public transport with any muslims in Australia who feel frightened to travel in their religious attire.

I'm pretty sick of Ozzies getting a bad rap, the majority of Australians are not racist and they are respectful people who will stand up for anyone who is suffering injustice, I am proud to be an Australian resident.
Yes!

For the love of animals. Pass it on.

"...Could I come home and think that I've been fishing all day or something?"
"Is there any way that you could, sorta just sock me out so that like I...I don't know that I'm at work?..."

Hijab - hair covering. Niqab - Everything covered but the eyes. Burka - The eye hole is meshed over, so absolutely nothing
