This is a post is written by my cousin.
When the earthquake struck, my beautiful cousin was on the fourth floor of the Christchurch City Library where she works.
All I can say: THANK GOODNESS she’s okay. Yes, she is incredibly stressed out from the experience. Yes, she is more than hyper-
aware that she could have died. Yes, when she says that they need support, she really means it. No matter how much, or how little you have to give – this is the time when these people need it the most. As she said – even a hug is more than appreciated. And keep the love coming! This is not a short-term disaster.
This is a time for community, and a time for love.
This blog post is for you my cousin. You are an amazing and beautiful person – and I’m overwhelmed with the effort you are making to help others, as well as support everyone with all the turmoil that you are enduring yourself.
