A Sydney woman today made an emotional plea on her Facebook wall, urging people to stay strong following the terror attack in her “spiritual homeland”, New York City, where eight people were killed and eleven injured when a man intentionally drove a truck onto a bike path.
Even though the woman only visited the city for two days in 2007, and never left Times Square, she constantly referred to New York as “my city”.
“My heart goes out to all my amazing people in NYC,” the post began. “But we are strong, and I know firsthand that if you can make it there, you can make it anywhere.”
The woman further wrote that although at times she gets lost in the hustle of making it big, tragedies like this keep her grounded so she doesn’t forget who she is or where she came from, (ed’s note: Rose Bay) urging everyone to “stay real”.
The 10,000-word Facebook essay also included photos of her looking amazing in NYC while the friend she posed beside looked rubbish.
