another tragedy. i mean, families of those people being killed - i don't know how they will start their new year since their loved ones died with so much pain. the news says that the fire started out shortly after midnight countdown and raced through the jammed of a two-story club, trapping a number people as they struggle to the main door. no findings yet on what has started the fire but the owner will be charged for the reason of allowing underage customers inside the club. let's pray for the souls of the victims as well as for the grieving families for their loss. it's very sad, really.

This is so sad specially on a day which people like to enjoy and pray for a happy year. Such tragedies can be avoided if only the people responsible (in this case, the owners of the place) take added measures in anticipation of the crowd. Since the owners are more bothered about a quick profit, they don’t spend more on safety measures.

Hi there! I am really sorry to hear that. I can just imagine the grief that their families feel. I lost my younger cousin who was murdered in December 29 of 2002 a couple of days before the New Year and it's like we never really celebrated the New Year that time. It only doubled the pain that we feel because times like that is best spent with the whole family which just reminded us that we can never be whole again, ever.
