Our hearts and minds are filled with the love that is evident across Ōtautahi Christchurch. What occurred on Friday 15 March is unlike anything experienced in New Zealand, and in no way reflects the open and tolerant country we call home. We cherish peace and kindness more so than ever.
As a city and a community, Christchurch is strong and inclusive, accepting of all those that have chosen this city as their home.
