    Christchurch stops to remember

    Last updated 13:59 22/02/2013

    A series of events are being held around Christchurch today to mark the terrible destruction brought by the quake and to remember the 185 people killed.
    "In the past two years, I would bet more tears have been shed in this city than in the rest of the country put together," said Key.
    "I know it's hard, I know there's still suffering, and everyone is anxious for things to go faster, but this job is unprecedented in the world, and we should judge ourselves by how we have come so far."
    "Safety and security don't just happen, they are the result of collective consensus and public investment. We owe our children, the most vulnerable citizens in our society, a life free of violence and fear."
    -Nelson Mandela
