Despite the barbaric actions of 1 misguided soul i have never been as proud of my fellow Australians who in the face of adversity have rallied around one another with a truly enlightened perspective.
The #illridewithyoumovement began during the #sydneysiege with one of the most simple yet moving acts of kindness i have ever witnessed. Fearing repercussions from angry Australians because of her Muslim faith a woman was seen removing her hijab by a fellow commuter but instead of being angry she insisted she put it back on and that if she was scared to travel alone that she would ride with her.
This started the social media campaign #illridewithyou in which everyday Australians offered to ride with anyone to afraid to travel alone and is still happening to this moment. Such a heart warming display of humanity inspired me to create this #sydneysiegetribute a visual symbol that people can display or wear as an invitation to any person feeling uncomfortable and in need of support.
This is my contribution, feel free to share it with the world
