Multiple gunmen stormed a mosque in Quebec city during evening prayers and six people are dead. This is my home. This is my place of birth.

The events in Ottawa on October 22, 2014 shook me and I will always remember the details of when I heard the news. I was standing outside the preschool waiting for my son's teacher to open the door when another parent said, "Oh, it's going to be a bad day..." My gaze rested on the top of my son's head.
