Six teenagers and a teacher were killed yesterday in a tragedy in the central north island.  They were canyoning and were caught in a flash flood.  My heart goes out their families, friends and the school.

The students were from a Christian School.  I caught part of a press conference with the principal on tv this morning, and have to say he did a great job.  Calm and compassionate.  It is events like this that make me realise the value of faith and community.
