Money isn't the root of all evil... but it's the root of a great many evils

I can't believe that Firefighters went in to that inferno. They deserve as much respect as the Military

German media reports that at least 58 people have died. The number can still rise.

I believe the highest potential figure could be 118.

One definition of a hero is a person who voluntarily moves themselves from a position of safety to a position of risk to perform a selfless duty. Given that definition, firefighters are clearly heroes.

Btw, if you are indirectly quoting the bible, 1 Timothy 6:10 stated that it was the love of money that was the root of evil. Not money itself.

They said the fire was so bad that some of the victims may never be identified.

While the rotten politicians stab each other in the back playing the blame game, I spotted a nice story..

Quote:
A six-year-old boy has gone to the site of the Grenfell Tower fire to donate his pocket money, saying he felt "sad" for the people who had lived there.

It depends on how it's made and what sort of fire protection is mixed with it. Panels like these come with both fire resistant and combustible insulation. A fire service slang term for expanded foam is "solid gasoline."

This video clip brought a tear to my eyes.
