Death of a 4 year old girl

Like everyone else, I was shocked and humbled by the death of a young innocent- a 4 year old girl allegedly thrown off Melbourne's Westgate Bridge. And her brothers are supposed to have seen it all. I cannot begin to imagine the pain that they have.

The editorial in today's Australian speaks of a reason to mourn. In an opinion piece in today's Fairfax papers, Adele Horin says that the nation seeks answers for the little girl's death.

I hope that we do find out the reasons why this young girl died. By finding out the causes of her death, we can at least honour her memory, and (hopefully) prevent further tragedies like this.
