New Zealand, we didn’t pay attention

27 Mar

I’ve surprised myself by being uncomfortable with the city of Christchurch, New Zealand. No not the city it’s self or the beautiful people in it, the name. The name bothers me to pieces, it’s obvious who founded the city but for some reason I can’t help but feel like I’m swearing when I discuss it… This is unimportant.

What is important is our Western medias casual shrug at Christchurh’s 6.3 earthquake, killing 75.
