Hoping for the best...... RE: Italy Earthquake


(Chris Allen) #1

Of you are of the religious minded, I encourage you to say a quick prayer for our friends in Italy.  There are quite a few high quality Yo-Yo Makers in Italy, and a well sustained yo-yo community.  Chances are you have talked with someone from the region on the boards and not even known it.

For those that don’t know why I am asking for people to pray, read this:

[quote=exert]The 6.3-magnitude quake struck at 0330 (0130 GMT) close to L’Aquila, 95km (60 miles) north-east of Rome.
It lasted about 30 seconds, bringing down many Renaissance-era and Baroque buildings, including the dome on one of L’Aquila’s churches.
Boulders fell off mountain slopes, blocking roads. Houses were reduced to piles of rubble and cars crushed by raining debris.
One resident, Antonio di Marco, recounted his experience for the BBC: “We escaped outside like madmen, we didn’t understand what was happening, the whole building was moving under our feet, it is something that’s impossible to describe…”

Huge earthquake, 1500 injured, 58000 homeless (from latest CNN report)

So, at the very least, if prayer is not something you are comfortable with, then hope for the best.
