– High Street, Christchurch, Canterbury, New Zealand

All i remember was the noise next the buildings just collapsed the screams of terror i will never forget. I was trapped in a High St cafe. My daughter at school in Merivale. I thought that my time was up but i was one of the lucky ones i got out. I have since left Christchurch i lost my car, job and nearly my life that day. I have left Christchurch and now live in Auckland with my daughter. Two years on i still dont sleep thru the night i sleep with light on i have panic attacks life is just not the same. My heart goes out to all the people still in Christchurch. I know they will rebuild one day but honestly is it safe?
