Bevan and Darran, just married. 8 days post the Christchurch attacks, Bevan in his speech Bevan talked about how he wanted people to call out hate speech of all kinds. Homophobia, white supremacy, xenophobia, islamaphobia – these are all things that we need less of. What we need is to hold on to being moderate, to not give ourselves over to extremism, fear and hatred. These two live this. They’ve built careers helping people in my community and theirs. They work damn hard. Bevan was a little late to a meeting for a beer in Clive a couple of weeks before the wedding because he had just been breaking bad news to people at the Hospital. So whatever you do, in whatever job you have, be that person that shows compassion, patience and love. And tell dad jokes. Cos if you don’t, I’ll tell enough for both of us.⠀
