Channukah lights

Tonight is the first night of Channukah, but this year, I am dwelling on other lights; the kind that sit on a helmet and light the way in a mine.

Tomorrow 29 lights will sit on 29 tables to commemorate those lost at Pike River Mine. The nation will stop at 2pm and remember.

I'm sorry to read of your country's sorrow.

Thanks Leora. It is our worst national disaster since an Air NZ plane crashed into Mt Erebus in 1979.
