How can this happen: Grenfell Tower.

The fire is finally out

Too many dead, without a doubt.

How can this happen in this day and age

A whole tower block consumed as fires rage.

God bless the dead men,women and children

God bless the living who have lost them.

How did this happen to those most in need​

I hope corners were not cut for selfish greed.

God bless the dead men, women and children

God bless the living who’ll never forget them.

I don’t know what to say. I feel so saddened. God bless the helpers, God bless the survivors and God love the dead. The death toll will rise in to the hundreds.

    It’s just been heartbreaking watching this. I can’t begin to imagine how petrified these people must have felt.

    A terrible tragedy and one avoidable by all accounts. I have been amazed at the support from neighbours and the multi cultural community.
    However, the authorities and government support have been noticable by their apparent absence.

    Willow, I was so sorry to hear about this latest tragedy to happen there. It’s just unimaginable. My prayers are with all the victims and the rest of you, our dear friends across the pond.

    You convey the sadness and disbelief that this horrid event evokes. I saw video today of people waving towels, looking for rescue. Heard of people talking to loved ones on their cellphones, until all went quiet in the roar of death.

    Fire is one of man’s worst enemies. Such a tragic incident.

    This was such a tragic and sickening event which never should have happened. It is beyond beleif that there were no sprinklers,and no fire safety protocol other than the occupiers being told to ‘stay in their flats.’ Absolutely appalling.
