I have realized how lucky I am today. Today, they demolished the Christchurch Police station that was damaged beyond repair four years ago in an earthquake that flattened my city. It’s a major landmark in my city’s history. In it’s place, it’s planned for a hotel to be build. I work in the building next door to it and when I go to work tomorrow, there will just be a huge hole.
Why am I lucky though? I have lived through so many events that made the history books. I lived in South Africa through apartheid, I was in Cape Town when Nelson Mandela was released from prison, I was living in South Africa when he became president and 10 years after and now, I’m part of the rebuild of a wonderful city after a devastating earthquake.
