Thoughts & prayers for our fellow Kiwis in Christchurch, New Zealand

So shocked and very saddened by the terrible earthquake just before 1 pm yesterday (NZ time). So not fair when many are still trying to recover from the massive 7.1 quake there in September. Yesterday's quake was 6.3 but caused more devastation and fatalities, injuries and still many people trapped under collapsed buildings. In September most people were still in bed in the early hours but this time so many were at work, shopping etc in the central city. Tearing up when reading about the mother killed with her baby in her arms after being hit by falling debris as she ran out of a store and about the 9 mth old boy killed when a TV fell on him. So many strong aftershocks too. :-( Praying for all those affected and for those still trapped.
