It has been a week since the tragic mass shooting that claimed 50 lives at two New Zealand mosques. To show their solidarity in mourning the lives of the victims, about 5,000 New Zealanders joined the Muslim community in a vigil on Friday in front of the Al Noor Mosque, where the majority of the tragedy had taken place.

“New Zealand mourns with you. We are one,” said Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern.

Her declaration was made evident by the many women in attendance who wore headscarves as their symbol of respect and unity, including Ardern.

The support spread to Twitter with the trending hashtag #headscarfforharmony.
