In Memoriam - Villagio Fire Tragedy
Many pictures have been posted and many words written but non of these can fully convey the loss and anguish of those who have had loved ones taken from them in the Villagio Fire.
Doha mourns this tragedy. There have been memorials and gatherings held through the city. Schools will be holding a minute of silence tomorrow.
Here on Qatar Living we want to use this thread to for the community to post a comment of remembrance for those who have passed. This is our "In Memoriam" thread. As Alfred Lord Tennyson wrote in his famous poem In Memoriam A.H.H.
I hold it true, whate'er befall;
I feel it when I sorrow most;
'Tis better to have loved and lost
Than never to have loved at all.
As this is Qatar, I'll start with the prayer that Muslims say when someones passes, to remind themselves that in the end we all will return to God.
Please leave your note or memory below. Please - this thread is not for discussion or blame - it is just as a means to remember those who have passed and perhaps provide a little solace to the families of those affected.
