My dear #London. I'm sorry for your wounded heart. Mine goes out to all the families and friends of those hurt yesterday by this latest terrorist attack outside Finsbury Park Mosque and to all those who fear their safety because of this hateful act. This diverse city in all its glory is home to so many peace loving #Muslims. They are my friends, they have been my mentors, scholars I've learned from and some who worked in my Edinburgh neighbourhood helped raise me with their daily empathy, honesty and humor. London would not be London without its Muslim population, most of whom's families originally settled there for the opportunity, tolerance and progressive thinking that this city stands for. We'll be ourselves again but it will take solidarity and good old London pride to get there. Fuck division. I'm for London.
I'm so sorry for our loss.
