Twenty minutes ago there was a breaking news story that came across our news: The New Zealand mine that had exploded last week had a second blast today, leaving no survivors.
This is heartbreaking in any light, but my husband is devastated. He found out one of his mates that he grew up with, went through secondary (high) school with, was one of the miners. This was a 25-year-old man with a baby on the way.
Please hug your family and friends extra tight today, and give a moment of time for the 29 miners that perished today.
