On Thursday, British lawmaker Jo Cox was shot and stabbed in her constituency. She died of the wounds she sustained.
Cox was a politician, mother of two and widely respected for her passion, integrity and commitment to her values.
The 41-year-old member of parliament from the Labour Party definitely had a big heart, and strongly supported helping refugees.
In April, she delivered an impassioned speech, championing a bill to accept 3,000 child refugees. Cox stated,
People across the UK and beyond were understandably devastated by the news of her death, and many took to Twitter to express their deep sadness over this loss.
But the most touching and important tribute to Jo Cox came from her husband, Brendan Cox. It's a message we all need to hear, especially during a week filled with tragedies.
In a statement released on Thursday, he said,
Unite against hate and live with no regrets: That sounds like absolutely impeccable advice. These are such beautiful words from a man who just lost his wife.
