Absolutely shocked to my core about the tragic earthquake that hit Christchurch this afternoon. It just seems so surreal when something like this hits so close to home and in such a small country like New Zealand, everyone is related to someone that knows someone that has been affected by this. It broke my heart, and yet gave me so much hope to see people being pulled out alive from buildings that collapsed, to turn around and go back in to find others that might still be in there. How amazing it is to see community becoming family and working together to help people.
It seems weird to think that less than a year ago, I was walking along those streets, exploring the beautiful city and finding little hidden festive roads. My thoughts and prayers are with all those affected. x
