Christchurch Earthquake

Tuesday 22 February 2011 will forever be etched in the minds of many New Zealanders as the day our hearts broke. A 6.3 magnitude earthquake rattled Christchurch during a busy lunchtime, trapping people in cars and buildings and choking the city with dust and smoke.
Despite the loss of many historical buildings, Christchurch remains hopeful that they can rebuild. What isn't so easy to come to terms with is the loss of life, this time it is significant. As we listen today to the list of the dead and missing, we realise the true human face to tragedy.
What is heartwarming, are the stories of humanity - strangers helping each other, sharing and supporting. Kia Kaha New Zealand.
Our thoughts and wishes are with all the people of Christchurch and their relatives and friends.
