On that day the history of Abruzzo changed as at 3.32am precisely an earthquake measuring over 6 on the Richter scale devastated the region causing some seventy thousand people to lose their homes and over three hundred people lost their lives.
In the early hours of this morning over 20,000 people attended a service in memory of that moment as the bells of L'Aquila tolled once for every individual that lost their lives.
Please take a moment to remember this terrible event and sadly the other tragic events that have happened in the world since then, it seems to be to have been an exceptionally bad year for natural disasters.
I have at least two blogging friends who have written posts today in remembrance of this event and are much better at expressing themselves than I am, so if you have a moment please follow the links and read their moving articles which I am pleased to be able to share with you.
