Oh, good grief!  Folks, it is up to you whether or not you help those 
among us who have literally lost everything.  Please, don't make a 
difficult situation harder by uselessly speculating about why 
so-and-so *might* have said a certain thing.  Trying to second-guess 
someone's motives is a useless waste of time and always does more 
harm than good.  

Certainly there is no point in placing blame - particularly on those 
who were hurt or those who are trying to help!  I'm sure Beorthlic, 
Elizabetta and Elisabeth are feeling guilty enough wondering if there 
was anything they could've/should've done to prevent this.  Why on 
earth would anyone feel it was their place in the overall scheme of 
the universe to add to that burden.

Rowan, it was clear to me that you intended no slight.  Knowing 
they were renters gave me, at least, a great deal more insight into 
just how much they lost (i.e. as someone who rented a domicile most 
of my life I know I never carried renters insurance).  Please don't 
hesitate to keep us informed about their situation - especially when 
they aquire new lodging.  Many of us have things to give them, but 
don't want to add storing a bunch of stuff to the list of things they 
have to think about at this point.  Also, feel free to let us know 
their immediate needs so we can find other ways to help.
