With a population of over 375,000, it’s an absolute miracle that not one person lost their life in the massive 7.1 Christchurch earthquake. I can’t help but feel that someone was watching over us. Although many people lost their homes and life will never be the same, it gives me great hope in humanity to see and hear stories of neighbors helping neighbors and complete stangers lending a hand to those in need. It’s a shame that we need such a big shake up for this to happen, but it’s funny how some things work out.

Here’s a great video tribute to the Christchurch earthquake which took place at 4:35am on the 4th September 2010. The song used in the video is Let It Be, by Journey South.
