A letter to Christchurch

Paul Holmes has written a letter to Christchurch in response to the recent earthquake. Here’s a little from the NZ Herald site –

Dear Christchurch,

 

I’m writing to you as an Aucklander, to my Christchurch cousins and brother and sister Kiwis. And I just want you to know how much we’re all thinking of you and how much we love you and how much we feel for you in these impossible days.

 

Your city is on its knees. Our eyes fill with tears at the sight of it. We watch the TV and listen to the radio all day and we hear your emptiness, your loss, your dismay, your shock, your disbelief. We see that ubiquitous bloody silt from the liquefaction, that weird up-thrust of clag that fills your back yards and covers your roads and buries your cars.

Read the rest here.
