We lost my family in the earthquake, and this pain made us cry. The monument was built to pay tribute to those who died in the earthquake. A white wall with the names of victims of the 2011 earthquake, which should have included people from different countries, is a small river next to it, the atmosphere is very peaceful, suitable for people to reflect and hang.
The Canterbury Earthquake National Memorial is one of the most interesting sites in Christchurch. We were involuntarily moved by some of the people (mostly men) sitting on benches as we watched the monument and immersed in its sad and powerful message. We can only imagine who they may have lost. The impulse to take pictures is replaced by the importance of not encroaching on the atmosphere of this particular place. It will be vividly engraved in our memory. May God bless all those who have died and those who have suffered.
A place with a heavy heart built to commemorate those who died in the earthquake.
There are no bright spots, a place full of negative effects.
