The terrible tragedy that has befallen the residents of Grenfell tower in West London this week has shocked our nation. The harrowing stories of families caught up in the devastating fire has had me in tears on many occasions.
People have lost everything. Every possession and memento has been reduced to ash, but the one thing that unites survivors is that they are still alive, while so many others have lost family or friends.
Once again we are reminded that possessions are meaningless. It’s people who matter, our friends, our families. They are ultimately all we care about when disaster strikes.
