My thoughts are with the New Zealand Shakers, many of whom reside in or near Christchurch. It seems coarse to wish that you and your loved ones are all okay, when we know that there are people who are not okay, but there it is. I am hoping you are among the people who are physically unhurt, and you have my profound compassion and sympathy for the hurt you are all certainly feeling amidst the aftershocks.
