What I know is that the man who did this is no more representative of British Muslims than the man who killed Jo was representative of white men from Yorkshire. Both were extremists, both were terrorists and both should be judged for what they did, not what religion they professed.
It's just one week on from the launch of DEC's East Africa Crisis Appeal and we have been completely overwhelmed by the incredible response from the British public. We've also had generous donations from the UK government, trusts and companies and many high profile figures, including the Queen and Prince Charles. To date, a staggering £32 million has been raised for East Africa... Sadly, though the scale of this response also reflects the severity of the situation; hunger is looming on a massive scale across East Africa.
As Sadiq Khan said this week," Londoners will never be cowed by terrorism. We stand together in the face of those who seek to harm us and destroy our way of life. We always have, and we always will." Until the day I die, I will always be proud to have been mayor of this wonderful city and its people.
We found that around half of us (49%) reported experiencing anxiety specifically in relation to the US election and following inauguration of Donald Trump as president, with 29% going as far as saying they have experienced a 'fair amount' or 'great deal' of anxiety.
Nimko Ali is a writer, FGM campaigner and co-founder of Daughters of Eve. Here, as part of The Huffington Post UK's All Women Everywhere project, Nimko vlogs on her experience of FGM and on coming to terms with being a survivor.
As a British Muslim woman I often fear that the backlash of such terrorist incidents will put me in a hugely vulnerable position, as a target for Islamophobic and racist attacks. I have been subject to many in the past, and it makes me feel very uncomfortable knowing that my choice of wearing the hijab makes me a very visible and obvious target.
As a millennial, the reality of reaching what we consider to be adulthood feels a world away from what was promised. We believed that working hard, educating ourselves and managing our money would lead to success.
Violent ideology knows not one skin tone, not one religion and not one nation. We will overcome this evil bit by bit, with each everyday errand and ordinary activity that passes. We will overcome this evil - and we will do it without 'useful' idiots like Katie Hopkins.
Perhaps if this was discussed more in the public eye, the Northern Irish peace process could move on to a stronger sense of everyone's aspirations being equal. That way too, mistakes of the past are less likely to happen again.
Don't get me wrong: Often it's okay to play the Child Card. But don't abuse it. Don't think that because life is so difficult for you as a parent, non-parents are obliged to make your life easier. I'll let you decide the date and place we meet. I won't comment on you turning up an hour late. But it's because I'm being nice, not because I owe it to you.
In today's political climate we need, more than ever, to get our stories out there. We need a forum where we can normalize our lifestyle without fear of erasure or dilution, because if we don't exist on in visual media then how can we promote, propel and prioritise our very existence in real life?
On this particular occasion we had invited someone else who was suffering into the fold. The former England captain and widowed father of three, Rio Ferdinand, was joining us to find out more about how we processed our loss and helped our kids through theirs.
On Mother's Day last year, I remember being so excited for the future. I was hopeful that despite not yet being pregnant, it was imminent. It would be my last year without being a mother, or at least an expectant mother. If only it was that simple.
New family. It's not what you lay in bed dreaming of when you were small and imaging how your life might be as a grown up. You don't ever really want to end up sharing your own children's weekends with another woman (or man) only linked to you by virtue of the fact that your former love has ceased to be yours and is now theirs. But that is how it is now.
In our communities, in our schools, in our places of work and in our families there are two very simple things that all of us can do. Whatever your views on religion, politics, military intervention or immigration, we all have the power to do these two things.
If we want children to engage in more sport to live healthier lives, then it doesn't help to have any confusion over definitions. I realise that not all sports are very physical, but gaming is already extremely popular and the issue of children being stuck to screens needs to be mitigated, not made worse.
Deputy Speaker Lindsay Hoyle put it well when he said: "We lost one of our village policemen. This is our village." But as well as being a community of more than 2,000 people who work here, it is in the end the nation's Parliament. Westminster has for too long been portrayed as the 'other', as a place disconnected from the rest of the country. And an attack on it is an attack on us all. That's why we'll keep calm and carry on today.
If you see or hear any Islamophobic commentary in the wake of what happened in Westminster, please say something. Don't be that person who records a stranger spewing their vitriol on your phone and upload it to Twitter later to then voice your outrage. This does nothing. Speak up and let everyone around know that the opinions of an ignorant few do not represent that of the rest of London.
Yesterday was scary for Londoners. Yes, in relation to other European terror attacks, it was small scale. But for a person who thinks their loved one could be involved, it's world-destroying. And surely anything to provide peace and reassurance can only be a good thing.
The police officers who directed others away from danger, while moving towards it themselves. The ambulance crews and staff at nearby hospitals who fought to save lives and comfort the injured and traumatised. My colleague Tobias Elwood, who did his best to save a dying police officer. Such people epitomise public service. I said after last year's tram crash that we don't say thank you enough. So to all those who helped to keep my staff and I safe: thank you.
This attack was an attack on British democracy, and British democracy is nothing without those who serve the public. Yesterday showed the worst of humanity, but it showed the best of British public servants. As they sat under attack, not knowing whether or not they were safe, most thought not of themselves but of the country and citizens they serve.
The Syrian regime has consistently refused access to independent international monitors to inspect their detention facilities. Amnesty International and other groups have been calling for action on this, and for the regime to publish names of detainees, their whereabouts and what has happened to the bodies of those who have died. It's now been one year since our bus journey. Many of the Syrians on that bus still have photographs of their missing loved ones displayed on their Facebook profiles. They are still waiting for news of their disappeared.
