default Thinking of the people of Christchurch today

Post by Adrian on 22nd February 2011, 2:08 pm

Such an appalling earthquake in New Zealand. We have just been watching BBC World News and I can honestly say that this is the first time a news report has brought tears to my eyes.

I know that compared to some of the earthquakes in India and China the actual number of people affected is quite small, yet the fact that Mr C and I recognised some of the places that we've seen on the TV news has really shaken me up. We visited Christchurch on our honeymoon and loved it there. The people were so friendly and we liked the city so much that we seriously considered moving there. When I first heard the news about 5am this morning I just went into shock. The sight of the cathedral, which we visited, made me really realise just how powerful it must have been. Horrific - my thoughts are with all of those affected.

Am waiting to hear about my friend's mother, who lives in Christchurch and whose house was damaged by the last earthquake. Have emailed but it will probably be a while before I hear.

I have friends across there too. Fortunately Rosie e-mailed me to say they were OK before I saw it on the news. My heart goes out to those folk who have lost friends and family - I just hope they can get as many out alive as they are able.
