The bird upon the steeple,
Sits high above the people;
All kneel down. (Ring Around the Rosies)
We are ok!! but New Zealand is small and something this big affects us all. Christchurch is being described as an alien landscape after the quake and that the city's fear is palpable. These people have been living with daily aftershocks for 5 months! This is one hell of a final blow to what is already a fragile city. Despite the tales of bravery and courage Christchurch is a picture of heartbreaking despair, B & C have ties to the City, having first meet there, B lived there for 5 years and went to University there. And it is has only been one day. The people of Christchurch have an enormous recovery - which they're already gone through once - still ahead of them...
