I am not sure what to think. This was tragic and preventable. It is part of the evolution of American Industry and Safety. I do not know what to think but I know that I feel the lump in my throat and the heaviness in my heart. I watched the PBS American Experience documentary and it also moved me deeply. The connection to all the names of people, where they came from and their families engages me and causes me to wonder. – Kevin Bergman, Cahokia Illinois   23 Aug 2016

It was a tragedy, and we all wish this would've never happened, but this was able to help pave the way for a safer, and cleaner industrial atmosphere that has forever changed manufacturing for the better. – Tanner Sapp, Columbia, MO   22 Aug 2016

This is a terrific compilation of information about this tragic historical event. – H.A., Austin, TX   25 Jul 2016

thank you so so much for this website! This helped me so so much with my research paper, I thoroughly appreciate it and feel there is much to be learned from a tragedy such as this one. Although we have improved leaps and bounds in terms of labor laws here in the USA, we have much to do in terms of the way we obtain our products from other countries. I am hopeful that a labor tragedy such as this one will never happen again. – Tatiana, CT   19 Jul 2016

Thank you for this easily navigated website full of great information on this tragedy that sparked a movement for better labor laws. – Shannon Wachob, Longview, WA   19 Jul 2016

tragic –   17 Jul 2016

All working class people can learn from the sacrifices made and lives lost, being dedicated to ensuring that greedy industry moguls are not allowed to treat their employees like expendable machines. We can enjoy our weekends and free time because they fought and because Roosevelt, being a progressive president, would not be bullied by the powerful industries. This is why we have the federal regulatory departments that continually work to protect us. It's wonderful to know that these young people, gone too soon, did not die in vain. – Matt G., Houston, TX   12 Jun 2016

The story and comments said by Louis Waldman brought tears to my eyes. Legislation has brought about many changes to our system, but even now the intention to set good working conditions for employees is still absent in many places. – MR, Abu Dhabi   8 Jun 2016

so sad this happened – AS, VA   7 Jun 2016

My great grandparents were in their 40s when their daughter died in this tragedy. I can't picture what it was likefor them to come to America for a new life and to lose a daughter like this soon thereafter. I regret not learning about my great- aunt from my grandmother and her siblings and not talking aboutwhat the loss of their sister did to them and to their parents. May the victims' memory be a blessing. – ms, NY   7 Jun 2016
