12.51pm, 22 February, 2011

Remembering the 185 people killed in the Christchurch earthquake and aftershocks;
the many hundreds injured;
the thousands struggling still to lead a normal life;
the rest of us who, nearly 10,000 aftershocks later, 
don't know what the next day will bring.
The Terrible Day we will always remember 

  We give thanks for every day.
