River of Flowers 22 February Can't Post

Tomorrow at 12.51pm marks two years since the earthquake that devastated the city of Christchurch.

Since we began what might be termed a seismic journey in Septmber 2010, many of you here have provided comfort, strength and support to me personally, to others here on the boards, and also to our city and province.

If you would like to take a moment to think of us tomorrow, here is a way you can join in.
Please drop a flower in a river or waterway, and become part of our river of flowers.

From the Healthy Christchurch website:
The River of Flowers is an opportunity to:
  • come together as a city through a river of flowers
  • let go through dropping flowers into the river
  • hold two minutes of silence to remember those who have died, been injured, or who have lost their homes
  • write notes of hope and post them on a tree of hope
  • acknowledge the importance of the river(s) in the life and heritage of the city
  • give a token of respect back to the river(s)
  • show the connections between communities - particularly those most affected
  • celebrate our strength - resilience and supporting one another



We are slowly moving forward but still have such a long, long way to go.
Thanks for reading. Smile
