Quote of the day:
We have friends in Christchurch who keep us in touch with what’s happening and we toured the red zone a couple of months ago.
But no-one who isn’t living there can really understand what it’s like living there and dealing with the aftermath of the big earthquakes and the ongoing after shocks.
Those who are doing it are showing compassion, practicality and resilience that none of us know we possess until we’re put to the test.
They’re showing us Canterbury can and is recovering.
