Per Aspera Ad Astra
Italy is a country that has given me so much. I find myself thinking about it often, either consciously or subconsciously - whether researching an obscure artisan, or daydreaming about my next vacation.
Today, like most other days, Italy is on my mind. However, today I mourn for the destruction and loss of life that was left in the wake of last night's earthquake in Central Italy.
When Italy is hit, the world tremors.
Your friends on the other side of the ocean share your pain... but more importantly, we share your resolve that you, i fratelli d'Italia, will pull through this tragedy.
...per aspera ad astra...
