Forgive me if this post duplicates, but now we must double our efforts.
There are those, myself amongst them, too ready to point fingers of blame at the government over efforts done or not done on this tragedy.
There are stories of crime and safety reviews, hence my appeal to this forum. Let us move forward and express gratitude to the heroes, the civilian helicopter pilots who literally flew into the gates of hell to rescue
the injured. True courage is being afraid, but doing what is right for the lives of others. Please, if you agree, then contact your member of parliament and ask that one or all four of these pilots be awarded the George Cross. None are more deserving.

Rash response to cafe note on nappy changing

Matthew Dallas Reporter from Manawatū Standard

Hi neighbours,
A two-sentence note to customers set off a firestorm of online emotion and negative reviews for a Palmerston North cafe. Are people too quick to be offended these days or are they justifiably riled?
