Sam called me earlier and said “Mom, somethings has happened and how should I put it? Everyone is alive”. Oh my, my head spun and it turned out that one of his friends in class family home burned down to the ground during the night, but luckily all members got out. We talked a lot, how fragile life is and when something like this happens, you are left with nothing. Virtually nothing – except your life and the lives of your family. Which is what counts in the long run.

The kids in class have started to raise money to give that girl a really nice gift for her birthday in a couple of weeks. Good good kids they are.
