Tribute to Christchurch and New Zealand

As all Kiwi’s and many others around the world stay shocked by the recent terror attacks, I seem to just struggle to find the words. The words that express the sadness, the hurt, the pain I feel for Christchurch and the people this has affected. Nothing feels quite enough.

As we all band together to show our love and support, I think this post could be a good reminder of how special New Zealand is. Our people care for our country and I hope nothing will ever shake that.

New Zealand is my home and the home of many cultures. We open our hearts to our visitors, refugees and expats. New Zealand and its people are beautiful.
