My friend Debra has a very moving tribute to the day and the monument that stands at Vimy Ridge today.
Italy is no stranger to earthquakes - some of you may remember that two years ago April 6th we experienced a devastating one here in Italy. Though it pales in comparison to the quakes that have taken so many lives and destroyed so much in Japan over the past month I was touched to see this poster on a billboard in our neighbourhood. I don't think it needs translation and it shows that the people of Italy understand.
