THE tears flowed and flowers were piled high in Martin Place today after one of the most shocking random acts of violence in Sydney's history.

A dark shadow was cast over the sunny city, as sombre city-dwellers attempted to carry on with their normal lives after last night's 17-hour siege.

Mourners gathered at the edge of the exclusion zone around the Lindt cafe, many of them sobbing and embracing each other as they relived the horror that has descended upon the nation.

It made a starkly different sight to the usual happy-go-lucky hordes enjoying the springtime offerings of Australia's most populous city.

Now this nightmare has come true, Sydneysiders are standing in unity. But there is one underlying question.

Will the city ever return to the carefree outlook of the days when we didn't believe this could ever really happen here?
