– Bishopdale, Christchurch, Canterbury, New Zealand

I couldnt beleive it was happening, sitting at my desk in the Telecom building, thankful it hadnt collapsed, ran outside total disbelief, dust thick in the air like a bomb had gone off, then panic sets in, I want to get home to my children, first time in my life I ran, walked and ran in front of cars to beg for rides to my home, thank you to my hero’s who got me there, and thank you to my neighbour who had picked up my traumatised babies from school and preschool
