Devastation in Christchurch

I woke up this morning to headlines of tragedy in New Zealand as yet another massive quake struck downtown Christchurch this morning.  The irony is that my last post was featuring the beauty of the town and its architecture only to see the pictures of it laying in ruin now.

 My heart pours out to the people of Christchurch and prayers for those lost or still missing.  Quite a number of US Antarctic Program participants are there right now as the this is the peak of their flow off the ice back home or abroad as the leave.  A personal prayer goes out to them especially hoping we haven't lost any of our own.
