Thanks for that Elena link, Pete. Other than that, I'm speechless.

You're welcome, it was spooky enough reading it, hard to imagine what it must be like to see it in person.

It appears that the people with the most courage were the first to die here. Maybe that is true everywhere.

"....people with the most courage were the first to die."


Are they being given too much credit? I ask because Elena notes in the heading of one of her photographs (a fire engine as I recall) that they.i.e., the firemen, pilots, etc, didn't know what they were getting into. "They thought they were fighting an ordinary fire."
