Ms. Ardern also warned social media companies they could face action, after the gunman broadcast his mass murder live on the internet. YouTube and Facebook say they have taken down millions of versions of the video but have been criticized because the clip can still be accessed. Do you agree that showing the act of terrorism over and over does no good, only publicizes the act of terror?

Rather than focus on the terrorism, Ms. Ardern feels we should focus only on the acts of heroism, and on creating a lasting legacy of memorials for the victims, and shifting our focus onto preventing future attacks. Do you feel when an act of terrorism or mass shooting happens, too much focus and attention is on showing footage of the attack/shootings?
