So this happened in Qatar, the country we moved from 10 months ago…..
We lived in Qatar for 3 years. We had a wonderful time. Do we know any of these victims? No, not personally. A recognition of someone’s name, a similarity from somewhere–perhaps we saw them at the grocery store once or saw them at a children’s birthday party? But whether we know them or not, it’s still hard to comprehend. I took Max to this Gympanzee center a few times to play. It never occurred to me to check for fire exits. I noticed, of course, that it was down a long winding hallway, but I never once thought we would be trapped there, unable to get out, while a fire raged nearby.
Hold your kiddos tight tonight guys.
