Aroha from New Zealand

Its been a hell of a year for us.

On the 15th of March 51 people died in shootings at two mosques in Christchurch.

Five people died in a tour bus crash on the 4th of September.

On the 9th of December 16 people died when a volcanic island tourist destination had a sudden eruption. 28 people have serious life threatening burns and remain in hospital. Today 6 bodies were removed from the island. 2 have yet to be found.

The people that have died here this year have been from Bangladesh, Egypt, Fiji, India, Indonesia, Iraq, Jordan, Malaysia, Mauritius, Pakistan, Palestine and Turkey, Australia, America, Britain, China and Germany as well as New Zealand.

(Forgive me for those I have missed.)

I’m sending my love to those gone and those that remain who love them.

Karakia
