On the personal level, my heart goes out to her husband - who has shown great dignity - and to her young children, who now must face life without a mother's love ...

On the broader level, no matter one's political persuasion, everyone can recognise that Jo was a very good person, with a heart full of love and an endearing joie de vivre.

What a bitter irony that such a person of peace, who had travelled to some of the most dangerous places on earth and returned without a scratch, should meet a violent death in broad daylight on the quiet streets of her own constituency.

The lesson we should all learn from this is that sending out a hate message is going to be latched on to by sick-minded individuals, with who knows what consequences ... We should oppose the hate message wherever we find it and try to spread love instead.

We may disagree on matters, but we should never forget that no matter what our viewpoints, we are all brothers and sisters.
We should seek common ground and hold to dialogue and never violence.
All this talk of religion, but it's how you live your life that is the all-important thing.
If you set out each day to do all the goodness and kindness that you can, and to do no harm to man or beast, then you are walking the highest path.
And when your time is up, if you can leave the earth a better place than you found it, then yours will have been a life well lived.
