– Christchurch Central, Canterbury, New Zealand

Feb 22nd, I was at work on 4th floor of hotel cleaning a guest room, I was thrown back against the door. I knew I had to get out quickly, running down the hall seemed to take forever as the hallway seemed to get longer.

Running down the stairs that seemed to be swinging of their own accord, cracks appearing on the walls.

The rumbling noises, the cracking noises, the sirens, the helicopters, those are the noises that continue to haunt my mind. I remember seeing pain, suffering and confusion on peoples faces that day as our city was brought to it’s knees.
