My poor parents are having a really rough time in Southern Greece.They have built a beautiful home there and they phoned us very distressed this morning that they might have to evacuate thier home as it is getting dangerous and the fires all over the region are raging out of control.Some stupid prats are just causing all this chaos because of the elections..They caught one guy..he caused many deaths because of the arsen attacks he caused..for me this is equal to murder, on top oif destroying the environment it is taking lives..already the death toll has reached nearly fifty. The problem now with law and order in general is that they are too lenient with these idiots but are so strict with other swho hardly do anything wrong1 Please pray for my parents if you can..I am a bit worried.

I am sorry your parents are having to go through this! It stinks! I hope they don't have to leave. I HATE having to evacuate! We have to deal with hurricanes. I have certain boxes marked to go and know where all my pic and important papers are. It makes it easier. Our prayers go out to them and all the other people affected by those idiots. Keep good thoughts...:)

That is one man who needs to be thrown into the same fire he caused, You wonder what kind of hearts some humans are made of-I wonder whether he feels sorry for his evil actions, no matter what he feels, he is a devil who must be placed into boiling oil, the right temperature for his kind of crime!

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. That is sad thet people have to start fires. From what I understand, Greece is a beautiful country. It is a shame to burn something as beautiful as Greece.

Hi Jufang, How are your parents now, are they safe at home? Very sad to hear such event, and it raised great concern here in China. I read a report that hundreds of soldiers were dispatched to fight the fire. How could that be? Why not thousands of? We had a very severe fire here in Northeastern China's Heilongjiang Province in 1979. Its reported the trucks were melted in tens of hundreds of meters distance. How terrible it was! Just hope that everything is fine now there with the Greek.

Sorry to hear about your parents. I hope and pray they are on a safe ground. I just can't comprehend how people can do such things. What has gone to their mind? Surely, they must be influenced by the devil. Please keep us posted about the safety of your parents. I'm sure a lot of people here including me are/will be praying for your parents and eveyone who is affected by the fire.

I just caught it in the news. The winds have subsided, & hopefully, the firefighters can get an upper hand on things. Gee, I cannot believe that a 65 yer old guy actually started another fire that went out of control. Anyway, I hope your family there is OK.

That is so horrible. I hope everything turns out ok. It's a shame that people find it interesting to start fires and ruin so many things. There are so many bad people on this earth, that don't care about anything, but themselves. I hope they find out who did it, and put them in prison for the rest of their useless lives. You and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers. Take care.

There is such a lot to take in from your discussion that I don't know where to start with my reply - my thoughts all feel so inadequate. I did not realise the fires kept being started deliberately. Nor that your parents would be near enough to be concerned. I don't really do praying but I will be thinking of them so I hope that might help.
