EARTHQUAKES: TWO YEARS ON ...
... and we wonder what we talked about before the earthquakes. Today is the second anniversary of the quake that changed the lives of those who call themselves Cantabrians. And you know what? We are in great heart, charging onwards and upwards. We have heard about desperate tragedy and stupendous heroism. We have re-discovered neighbourliness, on both a small and a grand scale. We have new ways of looking at things and, as the saying goes, have learned not to sweat the small stuff.
