There's not much to say at the moment. We're all just watching and waiting. Our country is calm and safe and, above all, small. We all know someone who knows someone. We've crowded around the TV and radio, waiting to hear more. I've spent the last couple of days working with eleven year olds, and today had to start answering questions about the earthquake. I tried to focus on good things, like the way everyone is pulling together to help, how they're looking out for one another. But I know those kids will go home, turn on the television and see it all. They'll feel that visceral pain we're all feeling at the moment, of seeing your country literally torn apart, ripped at the seams, collapsed in a heap. 

At the moment, they need money. You can donate to the red cross, or click here for more information.
