To be honest I have been feeling rather flat and perhaps a bit out of it today.
Seeing all the images from the Christchurch earthquake, seeing people in shock, seeing the damage that this earthquake caused, realising that tiny little babies died and indeed many more who were trapped inside the buildings and seeing the anxiousness on those who are waiting as the rescuers go in to try and rescue the living and retrieve those who passed.
There are so many people entering a 4th night without water and power. Some would have no food right now, they can't even flush their toilets and I can't help wondering how long before people will have a place again they can call home. Right now hundreds are staying in welfare centres relying on the help of others.
It is so hard comprehending the devastation and it makes you realise how we really only have today that we can be sure of. We can't get yesterday back and we really don't know if tomorrow will come. We hope, but there are no guarantees.
To all those affected by this devastating earthquake, my heart bleeds for you tonight. I am so incredibly sad that you all have to go through this. I can't even begin to imagine what you must be feeling. :'-(
