‘What if it was you?’-Lauren, 10, Clearview Primary

What if it was you?
Family lost and everything gone
People worrying and crying
Friends and family past away
Aftershocks everyday
Every time it went shake shake shake
Lots and lots of things would break
What if it was you?

    Hello Lauren

    If it was me when all was shaking around me I would be frightened and crying. I think that is a normal reaction when these big earthquakes happen and I would be worried for others.

    Your experience was a big one and I am sure it continues even though the shaking subsides but now other problems emerge and you have a memory that will never forgot what has just happened.

    You also have a strong spirit that will take you through this, it seems as though all in Canterbury have this special strength. Many people all over the world have seen this and have spoken of it.

    Please take care of yourself and give my very best wishes to all your family, friends and school.

    Hi Lauren,

    What would i do? If a big earthquake hit wellington i would be freaking out! When i first heard about the earthquake i was actually quite scared. That night i didn’t get much sleep at all. There have been quite a few big aftershocks in upper hutt. None of them have done much dammage like the christchurch one.

    Kind regards, Alex, Room 49, SBC
