For Christchurch


For the city where I was born..... I am so sad. This has been such a dreadful time.

To those of you who have contacted me, thanks for your kind thoughts. We live many hours away from Christchurch and are safe, but like most New Zealanders we have close family and friends in Christchurch and all our thoughts are with them. The whole of New Zealand is sad for our beautiful Christchurch.

It is unbelievable. I thought of you yesterday and checked the map to make sure you were safe but of course something like this affects all.

I did not dare ask any questions ...
I am terrified by the idea of losing loved ones, and now the friends of the blog around the world ... I watch the news with very different eyes, as in all countries there is someone to love, with whom I rejoice or cry ...
I embrace you strong: even here in Italy we know what an earthquake :-(
Love, Flora

So sorry for the tragedy you are going through. We are watching news on TV here. A few families here in Israel are missing contact with young relatives who were caught in the midst of the earthquake in Christchurch. They too share your worry. Keep safe.

Tragedy for Christchurch, it is like a war zone. So many lost and missing, the scenes are heart breaking. My heat is heavy for all New Zealand.

Such disaster brings nations together in prayer and practical help. Wishing for healing for those affected.

My heart goes out to you Carolyn. Such a terrible tragedy. I have been so worried about you. I'm so happy that you and your little family are safe. It's such a terrible loss for so many people. My prayers are with you in this difficult time and with all those people who are grieving the loss of their loved ones.

I'm so sorry... the earthquake in Christchurch is a tragedy. In Italy we know what it means... the suffering and helplessness is terrible and impossible to explain with words. A prayer for all the people who are crying and my thought for you
