Vigil at Westminster Cathedral

Last night thousands of kiwis and friends held a vigil at Westminster Cathedral. A cold evening didn't deter those who couldn't fit into the Cathedral and filled the square outside to listen to stories of friends and family back home. New Zealand's biggest natural disaster ever. It will take 15 years to rebuild this once beautiful historic city.
Letters were read out from those who have lost everything but remain positive and help one another.
A Maori choir sang How great they are and Haley Westenra sang the NZ National Anthem bringing tears to the eyes of every kiwi.
