Today I'll be reading about the experiences and reality that so many have endured and continue to face in and around Christchurch due to today being the anniversary of last years big shake.

As ever it's going to be tough to hold back the tears as I confronted by life in my hometown.

I'm proud that my work has helped raise funds and support some whom are there but also acutely aware I want to do more, to somehow fix the unfixable. To mend the hearts and minds of those who have suffered so much.

Somedays I wish I had a Faith as I can see how those that do can lean upon that as a means to cope.

Peace, unity and strength to those who've shown countless times what it is to be human in a place and time of chaos.
