This is how my five year old daughter is making sense of the earthquake in Christchurch. She told me that her doll, Ella, was a bit bruised by falling stuff in the earthquake, but she's okay.
We haven't had the t.v. on while the wee ones are awake but still...there are images everywhere and it's no secret that there are many dead and wounded. I don't know how to make sense of it at all. I am reeling thinking of the loss of life, the loss of heritage, and how on earth a city can recover from such a thing. Cantabrians, I am so sad for you.
We have to take the lighter moments when they come in these troubled times. So...you might be amused to see my latest foray into bottling beetroot.
But back to practical things. If you would like to make a donation to assist the people of Canterbury there is a list of places to donate here. Thanks.
