A very tragic event, that in the end supported new ways of law. These people may have died, but not in vein. Today we should reflect back on what happen, and make sure it never happens again. In conclusion, the people that died should be remembered, and never forgotten. For if it weren't for them, laws may never have changed, and you might have been the one in the fire. – E.H, NC   24 Jan 2017
