Today is not a good day to be afraid of fire. The story about the club fire and the almost 100 people who died is horrific.
I have always been afraid of hotel fires, but I never thought about a fire in a place like that. Could you imagine how frightening that whole thing was? Especially as quickly as the building seemed to burn. I wonder what I would do in a situation like that. Run for the same exit as everyone else? Get smart and head for one of the other exits? Or what if I didn't have a choice, because the surge of the crowd was too strong for me to move on my own?
I feel so badly for everyone who was in that club - the ones who survived for having gone through something so terrifying, and of course, the ones who didn't make it. Fire can be such a beautiful, warming, comforting thing. But it can also be a nightmare.
