Tower fire reaction

(1 Post)

I have just had a horrible realisation about the world we live in.

I woke up this morning and while I was feeding my DD I went on Facebook. Saw a post saying 'my thoughts go out to London, not again' (words to that effect), my first thought was that there had been another terror attack. As I looked at the news pages to find out it became clear it was the tower fire. I initially had a morbid sense of "relief" (for lack of any other word) that it was "just" a fire and not another terror attack. I am shocked at my own initial reaction, even if it was only for a second and am a little disgusted with myself.

I am currently watching the news and the interviews with the residents have brought me to tears. My thoughts go out to those involved, I can't imagine how horribly it must be.
