Sixth Anniversary of the February 22nd Earthquake

February 22, 2017

Flowers in the Avon River in remembrance of the day our city changed forever and 185 people lost their lives, with many more injured and traumatized. To mark the day, I attended the memorial service and the unveiling of the Canterbury Earthquake National Memorial. As you can see from my photo, I didn’t get very close to the memorial – like many others, I sat on the grass in the park with friends and watched the memorial on the large screen. It was a very moving ceremony.
