It shouldn’t come as a surprise to you when I tell you that Bruce and I stayed in Christchurch. We were warned in every town we went to, “Don’t go to Christchurch,” or, “It’s dangerous there right now.” Despite the danger we really wanted to go. We didn’t mind the ground shake that woke us up at 5 and 6 in the morning. But, we were bummed when we weren’t able to see the restricted areas.
Christchurch is hanging on by threads, but the people we met were holding strong. The most inspirational thing about Christchurch was that the people who stayed, were ready for change. We met up with friends of friends who lived in Lyttleton. They owned a local radio station (RDU 98.5) which was damaged from the earthquake. Despite their loss, they were still trucking, I mean they were literally buying a truck to put their radio station in. It makes sense no? If you have problems with your house there is always the road.
It was truly inspiring and an honor to see these people in Christchurch not give up. The Saturday farmers market was still there, the cafe’s re-located. No one lost their pep or pizzaz, but a lot of help is needed. We did what we could, but they could use a little extra help.
Contribute a little cash to the rebuild of Christchurch and be a part of the new revolution…
