Today is the first anniversary of the terrible earthquake that devastated L'Aquila, the main city of Abruzzo. The earthquake hit at 3.32 am on April 6 2009 killing 308 people. Thousands were injured. The majority of the people lost everything.
We were in Spain at that moment and fortunately we didn't experience this terrible event directly. But those who followed our blog at that time remember that we were under shock for several days having friends or relatives affected directly by this catastrophe.
Today AC/DC Abruzzo participates in the official commemoration that takes place in L'Aquila and in the whole country of Italy. We are physically far away from Abruzzo but emotionally we feel very close. Our thoughts go out to the strong and gentle people of L'Aquila.
