Deadly earthquake hit Christchurch, NZ...

I've been watching the news this morning, and my heart is aching... as you can see on my blog, on travel map, Christchurch is #9 of my fav. places to go list, among so may placces I've visited in my life, even I was there for only 5 days, on business. Christchurch is such a lovely, small city (although it's the second largest city in New Zealand), and I luv "kiwis"! They are one of the nicest people on the earth, in my opinion! I've once heard from somebody ELSE other than Kiwis that "kiwi husband" means "GREAT husband"! ..... I saw the cathedral being damaged...I'm pretty much familiar with earthquakes, living in Tokyo, Japan & Guam. I'm famliar with Pacific Plate... I even learned it in college when I took a Geology class... Earthquakes really make me scared. Living in east coast of US, I know most people have NEVER experienced the earthquakes in their entire life. Very lucky, in my opinion. Even when I was living in Sydney, Australia where earthquake isn't common, the earth SHOOK once!!... Earthquakes happen all the sudden, and in very short time (like 20 seconds!), the big shake DESTROYS many things, incld. people's lives... You can see the short video how devastating the earthquake was here....6.3 was the scale & so far, 65 was killed... they are afraid that many still have been trapped in the buildings... My prayer goes to the people in Christchurch & the city...
