Considering that the weather does not allow much for Wellingtonians at the moment as theres strong gusty winds and then you get a ray of sunshine in between. Am I scared? Maybe or maybe not? I have decided to ride the waves of 'quake' uncertainity for Wellington. I will go to sleep tonight being prepared for the worst case scenario.
My thoughts are with the Canterbrians who have suffered alot after the two quakes since September 2010 and the most recent one which has made New Zealanders world over to coverge together in rememberance for those that have died and those that are suffering as a result.
I watched the news coverage by the New Zealand Media, TV One, TV Three and also Radio New Zealand and my favourite channel Maori TV and can only congratulate all of them for keeping us New Zealanders in the know of how people are feeling and whats going on. It does create a great sense of Community Spirit.
The Prime Minister Speech. Hon John Key, is something that has consolidated our feelings and thoughts. It has been an awesome leadership at this 'dark days' in Aotearoa to use his own words. I also need to mention those great Politicians like Hon Peter Dunne, Hon Charles Chauvel, Deputy Prime Minister & Minister for Finanace-Hon Bill English and others like them that are earnestly reaching out to those that are suffering the aftermath of the Christchurch Quakes.
The Mayor of Christchurch plus all those that are working around the clock, Police, Army, overseas Emergency team from USA, Japan, Australia etc who all have been steadfast in their search and rescue. These great people all deserve a 'big thank you'.
Last but not least, as Wellingtonians, I just wonder whats in store for us in the near future in terms of the recent quakes we are now getting?
Will keep you posted.
