Two years on

At 12:51pm two years ago a 6.3 magnitude earthquake struck Christchurch.

On this second anniversary we remember the 185 people who died and the many others who were seriously injured.

We think of people whose homes and businesses were badly damaged, some irreparably.

We think of people still living in limbo, waiting for decisions, waiting for repairs, waiting to move on.

But two years on as the rebuild gains momentum we can also appreciate the work that has been done, the opportunities grasped and look ahead to better times for Christchurch and Canterbury.

    Like most kiwis I remember exactly what was going on in my life on the day(s) of the earthquakes, such a gut wrenching feeling. Of course nothing compared to those there and affected.
    Thing of you Christchurch, Kia Kaha
