Another shattering earthquake in New Zealand. Again in Christchurch.
I feel for the people of New Zealand, especially those who have lost loved ones in the tragedy. It is important that the families of those who are still missing do not give up hope, and I pray for the miracle that at least some of the missing ones will be rescued alive.
Prime Minister John Key said the disaster "may be New Zealand's single most tragic event". A friend in New Zealand told me that her 94-year-old aunt has coped very well with the earthquakes all her life but not this one which was very close to the surface and has wrecked havoc.
A few days before the devastating earthquake, more than 100 pilot whales were beached on Stewart Island. I wonder if the two tragic incidents could somehow be related?
