Today the Lindt cafe at Martin Place will re-open, just months after the siege at Sydney’s Martin Place that left Tori Johnson & Katrina Dawson dead.
In a move that most would welcome, Steve Loane, Chief Executive of Lindt Australia, said reopening was “the best thing to do”.
“After the tragic events that happened in December we discussed this reopening with our staff and gave a lot of thought to next steps,” he said.
“Overwhelmingly, the feeling was that reopening and moving forward is the best thing to do for everyone affected.”
Much like the reconstruction of the new World Tower after the destruction of the twin towers in New York, the best thing to do after such a tragic event is to show terrorists that despite the trauma, the heartache and the savagery we will stand strong and we will move forward.
