The great fire of London

After seeing this horrible tragedy unfolding on the news all I could think was how amazing are the emergency services. They are real true heroes fighting non stop around the clock trying to put the flames out and saving 100s of lives. I have applause applause applause for the emergency services. 

As one man said as he was going down the staircase to get out the burning building the firemen were going up towards the flames. This takes immense bravery and spirit. They risked their lives to save as many people as they can without stopping or hesitating. Other firemen climbing ladders to the reachable with the heat upon them to save the trapped is amazing scenes of heroes. They have my eternal respect. 

Some of the firemen said they knew they were facing a huge risk and entering into the towerblock was going to be bad and a massive risk to their lives as they were told to write their names and numbers on their helmets. Yet the heroes within them still faced the danger anyway. The lives of others came first even in the face of their own mortality. 

Nurses who were off duty came back on duty just to help the injured. Everyone came together in need for each other. Everyone has done their best to help as many people as they can. Humanity has come forward once again. 

The panic and terror of the people within the building must of been unimaginable. The extreme measures taken to survive must of taken a massive amount of courage and bravery. One woman dropped her baby from ten floors high into the arms of a man on the ground to save the babies life. The heat and smoke she was facing must of been unbareable. I cannot imagine ever having to take such a risk. The man who caught the baby in his arms from such a height is a true hero and nothing less. What a heroic tale and how a mothers love for her child took an ultimate risk just to give the baby a chance to survive. 

The spirit of the people has been amazing. The way people have helped others in their time of need has been amazing and shows true spirit of community and humanity. People have booked hotels near to Glenfell tower from towns far away so the people who have lost homes can stay there. People have offered rooms in their homes and people and shops have bought food and drinks for the people made homeless by such a terrible fire. 

This shows the beautiful spirit of England and of the Londoner. This shows true spirit of humanity and love for others. The good within us all has shown through. 

Donations and online funding from various towns and nations has reached into the millions. People have rallied round to help their fellow mankind. Community spirit has shown through. 

May all the missing be found safe and well I shall pray for them. 

May the victims rest in peace taken sadly in this fire of London. May such a tragedy never happen like this again.
