These forty-four people and six others were killed in a terrorist attack on two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, police announced Sunday. Fifty others were found wounded, several of whom are in critical condition. They are victims of hatred, Islamophobia, racism, and white supremacy, who were murdered in their places of worship. The Blue and Gray stands against those who propagate these ideas, and we extend our sincerest condolences to the loved ones of these victims and to the country of New Zealand during this devastating time.
