A sad day today. A day we remembered where we were and again shared our experiences of a year ago, of all we have lost. Has it really been that long.
My oldest son and I walked to the newly unveiled earthquake memorial and at 12.51pm layed flowers we picked from my garden. My son wanted to decorate road cones with them. There are so many of them in the city and a lot have been decorated by the people of the city as a tribute. Where we live, road cones are not so common however, so I felt the memorial was appropriate. I have watched this memorial garden being built from the adjacent park over the last couple of months so it was appropriate for us to mark the exact time at the resting place of many of the victims.
Kia Kaha Christchurch!
