Christchurch February 2011 Earthquake (4th Year Anniversary)

Well, it has been four years since the February 2011 Earthquake that shook the most English city in the southern hemisphere and killed almost 200 people. Christchurch has changed so much since. . . though we still feel the random shaking or "aftershock" as people would like to call it and many of the quake victims are still struggling thanks to insurance companies who are too busy sponsoring rugby jerseys rather than helping the people they owe.

Anyway, this post is just a remembrance of that tragic day in Christchurch and New Zealand history.
