To begin anew after an event as horrifying as the earthquake in hilly Central Italy takes courage. At least 300 lives were lost, and ongoing tremors continue to terrify survivors. For the future: prevention, prevention, prevention.
The death toll from the quakes -- so far seven serious tremors have devastated these lovely ancient towns in the Central Appenines -- is over 240, and will doubtless increase. These are moments which bring out the best and worst of us, and you too can contribute.
