A very sad day for New Zealand yesterday with the acceptance that the 29 men trapped in the Pike River Mine are presumed dead after a second "unsurvivable" explosion at 2.37pm, Wednesday 24 November 2010.
I went for a walk early this morning, watching the sun come up over Auckland harbour as I went. How lucky are we all to see something so beautiful?
My heart breaks for the 29 men, aged 17 to 62, too young to die. Fathers, sons, husbands, brothers.
This beautiful sunrise is for you.
