Very sad. – dmp, Chester, PA   8 Feb 2016

I had to do write a paper for my Labor relations class and I am so glad it led me to read this. I dont think I have ever read something to sad. Many of us do not know what it is to work hard for things. Many, take things for granted and after reading this, it has made me be thankful for everything. These works died trying to make a living. It is so sad to read how they died in such a cruel atmosphere. May they rest in peace. – EMILY BERMEJO, MIAMI   7 Feb 2016

I had to use this story to role play in my language arts class. This story is and was a very tragic situation and i think that many many things could have been prevented. i feel very bad for all the people who have died in this situation. RIP and thanks to all the people who have helped get people out of that building and help them get to saftey. – Angelina Rivas , oviedo,florida   5 Feb 2016

such a tragic event that led to so many great advances in the safety of the common work place. – Madison , St. Charles IL   28 Jan 2016

Flames leap higher, drowning the room in smoke. The air is thick with fright, gasps and screams coming from raw throats. Heat creeps ever closer, circling 'round the room like predator stalking prey. There is no escape except the open widows behind, and we take the leap. The plunge. Into the open air we fly, flying away from the great blaze behind. -A poem for those were lost. – Sydney P, St. Charles, IL   28 Jan 2016
