Earthquake in L’Aquila-but we are all well

We woke up at 3.30 a.m Sunday night/Monday morning to a Earthquake that was 5,7 richter but brought down the entire antique city center, and, unfortunately, many new buildings as well. Me, my wife, daughters and extended family are all alive and unscratched. We were able to save the animals two days ago too. But almost three hundred people lost their lives, 1000 injured and tens of thousands are homeless, at least temporarily. I am staying with relatives almost 100 km away now where we can no longer feel the aftershocks. I thank everyone for their words, worries, prayers and offers of help. I’ve always believed in people, now I believe in them even more. Even if some “people” are the criminals who built the modern buildings that fell – Abruzzo is seismic but usually this magnitude does not bring down buildings if they were designed and built properly
