Through all this sad and devastating news, there is nothing that has made me feel a sick as hearing on the news tonight, that a family sitting vigil at the cordon, for news of their loved family member, has now had their damaged home cleaned out by looters. Boy do those dumb heartless people need taking out and shooting at dawn[:(!]

Did you know, that what you thought I said, was not what I meant :S

It's hard to understand how anyone can be so devoid of any feeling as to do that. I hear a few generators that were keeping cell phone towers have been stolen too....the people doing this must be sub-human :(

While there have been millions of words written about what happened, this account is so touching and well written that I think it should be widely read. It reduced me to tears, as so many of the stories have...

Oh my goodness Kate. I was ok until I read that last sentence :(. I have a 9yo daughter and i can't imagine how awful it would be to know your child was that scared and not be able to be with them.

Kate - thank you. I have found it hard to watch the media coverage for the exact reasons that this wonderful writer, partner, friend and mother mentioned - just sickened with the shallow stupid questions.

I have found myself yelling at the TV with words I won't repeat because so much has been reporting things we don't need to see, so much we do not need to hear as speculation etc.

My heart aches for all the people affected and I hope that in the aftermath of this, there will be a rebuke and guidlines put in place for journalists as to what the word "respect" means to those who are affected and particularly those who have lost family or friends and those still waiting to find out. Just shocked at the lack of compassion which I would have thought was instinctive. Seems not.

Sorry - I wasn't trying to make it worse but it's so well written...

Didi, I completely agree - some journalism has been very intrusive.

Very well written, so personal. Should be read by all and we should heed her advice.

So who else has received one of the scam Red Cross emails?
I have, so far, managed to get two. [:(!]

They have done a good job, especially of you don't look at the real one.
A few alterations and ...... there you go, your credit card details are theirs to use.

They of course have remove the Red Cross bank details. Beastards!!!!!!!!!!!

I can see many falling for it in the need to help the suffering.

And this too. FFS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
