It was just about 6 weeks when we were in Christchurch, New Zealand. At the time, we were devastated by the damage that the last “big one” caused in September 2010. The dozens of aftershocks afterward caused yet more damage.
We walked in the church pictured in this article. We walked the square where young girls were performing Irish dancing to raise money to attend a competition. The steeple of the Anglican church that hovered over all of us, is no longer. It transformed from formed beauty to scattered rubble.
My heart and positive thoughts go out to those who are still trying to find loved ones and to those who know they have lost loved ones.
What is really creepy is the fact that we hiked the glaciers. Now we read that there was a 30 million ton glacier calving. You can read more here. One never knows.
