This post is up early, for reasons that will become obvious. It's a tribute to the people of Canterbury who, at this moment one year ago were shaken from the slumber on a cold Saturday morning.
A year has passed, with more earthquakes, more death and devastation, and countless tales of bravery in the face of adversity. Christchurch will rebuild, and a better city will emerge from the dust and rubble.
So here's a song from Kiwi Christian band Magnify; it's focused more on the February quake, but both dates will be to the forefront of people's minds today:
Kia kaha Christchurch; kia toa; kia manawanui. Our thoughts and our prayers are with you today.
