Christchurch Quake Heroes

Wednesday, February 23rd, 2011
  • my 87 year old father who rushed into a madly shaking house to save his wife of 56 years (happy anniversary parents!)
  • the doctors, nurses and volunteers who nursed my mother (and her broken arm) with such thoughtfulness under stress
  • the neighbours who gave us drinks and food
  • the shopkeeper who trusted me with credit
  • the motorists who behaved impeccably without traffic lights.
  • This is my growing list; each of the 400,000 plus residents of Christchurch will have their own heroes.

    Hero Update: the neighbour who saved Dad when the house burned down 2 days later (electrical fault caused by the quake).
