O for Awesome and O for Awful

I am in awe of the fantastic spirits of the Christchurch people.
I read the news, I cry. 
I watch the news I cry.
For the valour.
For the courage.

I can't comprehend the thought process of (as an example) people who would break into someones' home whilst they are at the cordon area waiting to hear about whether their family members have survived.
Who are these people who look for stuff to steal in a city that is so crushed?
Is it really possible to have such little compassion? 
Can people who are there really have no emotional attachment to what has happened?  
I have. 
And I'm 1020 kilometres away!

And so a glass of wine, whilst I balance the good and amazing against the stupid and  shouldn't exisit.
I'll show you the craft stuff another day
