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.
