One of my favorite things about New Zealand is the sense of community, everyone is united. (This is also one of the major things that attracts me to my current Hometown.) I have been reading local New Zealand articles and trying to keep connected with the Christchurch Earthquake that happened not too long ago. A few articles here and there express that things are well, there was another aftershock with no damage and that everyone is coming together to help rebuild this city, as you can see above.
I am happy to see that there is progression and that the humanitarian still lives in us all.
(As for the Japanese tragedy, my heart goes out to that country as well. It is overwhelming to read the articles and keep up with the news for all that is happening over there. We are donating $100 for each kayak we sell in the month of April for relief efforts.)
