Kiwi Heroes

As the world turns,
Past grieving mothers,
Fathers, daughters, sons,
Families torn apart -
People shine,
Students, heroes,
strangers,
All their hands
Full
Of spades, buckets, brooms
They mean to sweep destruction away
These bloody kiwi heroes
Even as they rail,
Even as they grieve,
Standing tall
Together 
Against an Earth
That just wont stand still.

Yes, this is because of the Earthquake.   I wanted to acknowledge all the heroism, large and small, of the people of Christchurch and the crews who came in to help.  They are all kiwi heroes.  And I hope that is of some comfort to everyone who has also been affected and feel so very much at a loss as to what to do.  (PS I heard money is good, as usual be a little careful it is going to an organisation you can trust to get it to where it is needed most.  See my previous post if you're really stuck :)
