How to make a lazy narrative fit your desired hot take:

Columnists like the National Post’s Andrew Coyne and the CBC’s Robyn Urback were quick to point to the confusion surrounding the attacker’s identity as an example of the left and right engaging in the same game of premature speculation in order to prove ideological superiority. But this is a false equivalence; while it is important to wait for all information to come out in a dynamic situation, Muslims and their allies have different reasons for speculating than right-wing Islamophobes. Speculating that a white man may be responsible for a brazen hate crime is an act of self-defence, motivated by a desire to see their community’s oppression taken seriously. The far right, on the other hand, hopes to see a Muslim held responsible to push forward a bigoted narrative of a nation under attack by Islam. These identity differences may seem trivial, but one only needs look at how this attack was covered to see how the distinction manifests materially.

Sorry for getting ranty.

I have to be hopeful despite everything that has happened, is happening or going to happen.

History wise all our ancestors no matter their origin or place of habitation have been under outside conquerors, adversity natural and man made and who knows what else. What they all have in common is the will to survive and not only that but to thrive. What is happening now will affect me but I still have the next 40 or more years in front of me. I will survive and thrive I owe the ones who came before me that much. So I can't lose hope even when everything seems the bleakest.

Personally I've had surgery of my ACL, my nephew-in-law (RIP) committed suicide, layoffs still continue at my company. Despite this I just broke a personal record (pre-torn ACL) for a leg exercise, my niece was born and named after her cousin and aunt to carry on their spirit, and I have been promoted to run North America engineering for my product line. Life will continue and in many cases it does get better. The only thing we can do is move forward.

So cry, get angry, curse everything, grieve there is no shame in having this kind of reaction it is what you do after that will make the difference. Rally, protest, write letters, run for office even, or at the very least treat everyone with kindness. Anything you do will make a difference. Most importantly in times like these support each other, we can make it thru together.
