I quietly said a prayer yesterday for the people of New Zealand, where one year ago an earthquake took away so many and affected so many lives. May God help to restore your community to the peace and love it once enjoyed, and may that flourish anew in your midst.
"Thou art thou brother's keeper," it says in the Good Book. Through humanity and through communities, that spirit holds true. I pray it reaches New Zealand too.
My loves to all brothers and sisters of New Zealand.
