My sister Sharyn has come over from Sydney for Easter
and I took her this morning around as much of the city as I could.
We went out early before anyone else was up
(apart from the soldiers)
We stood together by this fence and cried
for each other and for our beautiful city
which is so broken.
I've decided to take my quilt pictures on the fences for a while
it seems fitting somehow, especially for a scrap quilt
taking all the broken pieces and making something new.
We took our sister Jo back here so we could see it together.
More people died at this site than any other in Christchurch.
Lives were forever changed in an instant.
But I have hope that we will rebuild our city again
beautiful, that we can be proud of.
In the mean time we keep shedding tears.
Please don't forget us.
