Following the devastating 6.3 earthquake in Christchurch, New Zealand, Mayor Bob Parker said, "We are not going to walk away from this place."
I was reminded of my trip to New Zealand 10 years ago and the remarkable beauty of the city. Here are a few photos from that trip. I shall always fondly remember my time there and will keep the people of that city in my thoughts and prayers.
