Working through my feelings about the earthquakes in ChCh


My eldest son, his partner and my youngest son were living in Poplar Lane in a second story flat when the magnitude 7.1  earthquake struck at 4:35 am on September 4 2010. They escaped physically unharmed but lost most of their possessions. Within a short time their flat and surrounding buildings were just a pile of broken bricks and rubble.
