This got to me. I bet she held them tightly.

This is just so terrible. Hundreds of people lost their homes, the fires came so quick that quite a few had to escape without even their clothes on, running from the shower etc.<br><br>
I think I hope I would be strong enough to, if I ever were in a situation like that, smother my children before the fire would get to us.<br><br>
So far, global warming has not be gentle to south-eastern Europe <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">

It was reported on CNN last night, that the fires may have been set as a tactic for developers to get more land and get around strict Greek laws protecting the forests, apperantly that had been done in the past. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/angry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="angry"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/gloomy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Gloomy">:<br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/candle.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Candle"> for everyone who perished in the fires

I see other countries sending aid but is the US sending aid?

I just heard on local radio that some MA & RI firefighters are getting ready to leave, and I also saw this:<br><br><a href="http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/europe/6964345.stm" target="_blank">http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/europe/6964345.stm</a>

One hundred and seventy fires and most of them suspected to be arson...and now forty six people are dead. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/bawling.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="bawl"> That is beyond horrible.
