Airport

i have just collected friends arriving from Christchurch.
I arrived early to a sea of people all anxiously waiting at the gate. Every man woman and child had the most extraordinary stress written all over their faces. More than half the crowd openly weeping. As the Cantabs started to come through the emotion was too much for this blogger.
I cannot remember a time in my life when I have been more sad.

This is the kind of thing that seperates civilisation from the veneer of civilisation. Some will have what is needed but others, like looters, won't.

My Dad and Mum arrived safely today, so I know the feeling of relief well.

"I cannot remember a time in my life when I have been more sad."

What? Even more heart wrenching than the ending of the close friendship between yourself and Darren ?
