Americas lack of Character and a Daughter Dies by Fire Alone
I don't care if your afraid to die you sit with your daughter and you burn alive. That is your kin. I have a 19 year old biracial step daughter and I would stay and burn with her trying to convince her to go out but if I had to suffocate from the smoke I would suffocate. A parent should die by fire if their children are they should never leave anyone behind.
That goes for grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins. Your all kin you should all sit and try your hardest to get them out if you couldn't you do not leave them in the horror. You take the horror with them. When they find the bodies you should be comforting that child whether they are 2 or 20. They are kin. This is proof that the character of Americans is seriously failing. Yeah it may sound like 3rd world country stuff but you look at the family, tribal structure of 3rd world countries everyone takes care of everyone. America may be powerful, America may be rich, But my America has lost its soul. To many other things are more important than the family.
Hug your little girl tonight and know you would die with her if you had to don't fear the unknown because the unknown will always remain the unknown. But your family is known to you.
