With Respect, NZ.



I will not be announcing the winner of my giveaway today. I will leave it until tomorrow, Thursday 24th November.

This is in respect of the 29 miners in Greymouth, New Zealand who are believed to have lost their lives after a second explosion rocked the mine today.

My heart goes out to their families, loved ones and to the whole New Zealand Community. I would never be able to understand what they are going through. My thoughts, best wishes and prayers are with them all.

I have friends and family in New Zealand and I have been as shocked as them with this sad, sad news.

What a lovely post, Pam. While I don't personally know anyone involved, I feel overwhelmingly sad tonight for all involved.

Not sure what else us South Island NZers can get thrown at us in 2010...

This just proves life is unpredictable and we should not miss an opportunity...never feel aggrieved with anyone cos it doesn't matter really does it...we are all affected by this in so many ways...the families will rebuild, and we send as much positive energy to get them through this time...xx

I'm sure the whole world is shocked by news like this. I heard it on the news tonight. This is so hard for those families. Our thoughts are with them and I wish for all of them to have someone to support them in these terrible moments, someone to just be there for them, so important.
Bye,
Marian

It was such a terrible tragedy. We were expecting here in Chile that all the miners could make it out as our miners did....
My thoughts to their families.
