bob fosse tried to 4 months later i feel much quieter and i feel much more calm and really focused with my life i'm not there and this get me down. he finds peace through his faith and is getting professional help. praying praying to god because when you pray you leave all that in the primary and you just pray to god and i'm seeing a counsellor. who is a really nice lady and she house me quite a bit to talk openly about my forte's so you hear me talking about it to my family freeness and it has helped me a lot. at the time of the attacks was stuff i was studying engineering and christchurch but as plans have changed when i was landed on the hospital bed i was franking really really hard with i want to go back to study or change like area and . what happened then crash. motivation. to serve my community.
6:45 am
he decided to apply for the police back in his hometown of the need to. know ryan he's been struggling to deal with the grief of losing his son sajjad and i didn't cry so much as i cry now every day compared to the 1st few days because i received a lot of support and i feel so much strength that i really hope that. now when this is sure that people are still preaching. to all of us the mothers. or the wife's or give us strength because we need we need this right you need. they're praying.
6:46 am
today the local maori community is hosting a commemorative event for sajjad extended family and friends 'd the maori group invited us just for that. yet because he's one of the people who are loose in this area and we are part of this lead the community and the muslim youth to be part. of the group who who would be at the ending with the other that the youth as well. i personally agree to it then it is because when it happens i found the most important the there really is better support this. stuff has goal of joining the force keeps a motivated for now he's focusing on his rehab with the physical abilities test in
6:47 am
mind he's working closely with his physio even just letting the scholer hang on that immobile position in the hospital for a while to really slow down your rehab and prevent all those muscles from kicking back on like they are by what the doctor said that trap and reabsorbed has not yet so we're we're on the healing journey or in the process and how much do you have to run for the test. to prove forgive me it is 2.4 k. and that's hard to do with a ball in your head as you should know if the muslim. those afraid to. the terrorists and to people. how many times they wonder how many of. them. been sick and. my sister's calling to say don't going to mostly has been this one for it was edited just didn't look to me calls the. once
6:48 am
a year yet no you take as much time to me. how you don't rather. good to be what it was sickening. better won't feed us from. the start. you're going. there's only one. down. well there are people all over the world just. isn't very good at. you know what all is which they talk about your ball. to get it all over. your head new worry for a 2nd you know it. has been a false alarm it's not at the mosque. still same thing you know it doesn't matter whether the mosque us home or ass you still get that thing off the feeling that i
6:49 am
had left it for much. just a little blood came to it and. it. gave me a big ask a and i. just i'm not i'm going to experience the same thing again. and stars people that are not as i was a kid as well. and. that's just not my friends as anyone i don't want that to see that heaven turned on and i want to innocent the. cooking time at 40 it's house is nice 500 does what she can to help out as he adapts to losing the partner he worked with so closely him anything we deed we complemented one of the. you nearly think teaching her knowledge is she looking
6:50 am
after the community listening to that which you probably. read says he wants to make the most of what time he has. been the waiting room on my way you know i spend what is 3 fourths every day i take classes in the mosque i do some social. you know homeopathy. study to get more knowledge. it is true but something in me say's you know make use the time you never know tomorrow you might not get the chance. i'm not the public they are quite aware of the most things out especially the woman.
6:51 am
for me personally like whenever i go out people are more friendly. people are more friendly and people are more like like saying that. you are welcome . we know eenie arrived in new zealand 25 years ago she was given some good advice i was told to learn how to drive so. that's what i think when they were i see woman now when they come i say learn how to drive because it's good you know to. to be independent it's good to be dependent. because you and they would know that when you need to be. after the 15th of march many women had to manage on their own it's
6:52 am
a big city traffic lights come. on. we cannot depend on a man to do something that didn't think because this is what happened. men have possibly. this simple thing like driving it will give us the ability to do you know to go forward easily you know you don't have to start going that they have as you don't have to then they have to drive because you can drive now. back into need and most stuff is feeling more like his old self before i had heaps of moderation i do now as well it's just loading it up and getting back to it was. he's training hard but still mindful of this bullet wound industry. that's just getting out really well don't you get it fixed me is like the softer
6:53 am
one and stuff other there. and also. brightly i had a t.v. take that but it also hurts it's good stuff. but as long as i wear the compression socks it's all good. for now he's focusing on the rehearsal for the physical abilities test his 1st attempt is tomorrow is just. what he was in one of the protocol for. when i go shopping and it was a place. it was just 40 percent like and i want to be that guy. and. yeah those are your job of getting you put a smile on their face. function and the same place you have. a. good receiver he makes the walk for going to comment. it's compulsory for police
6:54 am
applicants to do at least one rehearsal before they attempt the real thing on your . seat. the important yeah so i'm going to give hundreds it. means a lot to me i want to do my best and then the 4th. time was 9 minutes 29 seconds. am really really surprised and happy about it yeah if. you learn what i expected i mean i passed so i was working for nothing. no raney's son sajjad was a keen member of his school's foot cell team he's a goalkeeper yeah. you know like when he played football or every time. when he said the ball of course we're so excited but when he didn't we say that was
6:55 am
ok you know you try you try very hard. on going connection with the team is bittersweet i still feel quite emotional you know. a mixture of happy and sad. so this is this is one of the babes used to wear and he played. it also has like a medal from our sports alternate which he didn't get to go to. every year just into it it's not like it's not something we can easily get over and i think we're doing the best we can but. it's still. early and so that's why we need the team that's emailed just to play for. actually i'm really proud of what part of the blogs did they really think so much i'm going to really say it's friendship with
6:56 am
them even to say that it's not here. mustafa's feeling positive about his chances of progressing through the police college application process after my ph d. i had my uncle as a show up to place new zealand it was really good we had a good chat but when he filled out the medical form online one of the questions stood out have you been exposed to any trauma to stray sions and i of course you can't lie and things changed at least for now i was saying that it's been declined my medical care. and. they told me to not give up and have my hopes.
6:57 am
because and they said in the plays i'll be dealing with like traumatized people and traumatized rationed and they don't want me to be exposed to that to see they want to they want me to give some time. i was got to you know i was i mean you can argue it. so i just went along with it and i just i said i can't you know i don't i don't take this as a failure i am going to. get my hopes up and. i want to come back next year and. reply. this morning nora eenie is with friends practicing gulf swings early every evening having a good time i'm really glad you know that. we enjoy that enjoy the day. and get our 1st ration gone. and this is the good.
6:58 am
oh. when i hit the ball. all my anger gone. and you'll come back again and then i hit again until i have not much energy left. that is not fair because life goes up and down. the beach at least. i should not hard to you you should work hard if we can agree on this as a human family. then. we'll be fine let us love one another that love doesn't cost $1.00 cent. makes your heart happy and my heart if it doesn't bring any loss for the new simple. there to spread
