BX Blaze Victim

On December 28, 2017,  my home was taken away from me. I never thought my family, my neighbors and I would be victims to a blazing fire. I never imagine that a tragedy would hit so close to home. People who I grew up with, children who I watched grow. We were not just neighbors from the same community, we were family and we lost loved ones that were mothers, sisters, brothers and babies. This tragedy was devastating and heart crushing. Thankfully, my daughter and I were able to escape the building during the fire.  I was able to carry out two of my neighbors children. I wish I was strong enough to help more. Although I survived and helped out as much as I could. I am tormented by the fact that many lives were lost. I would trade in everything if we could have all survived.  Unfortunately the nightmare is not over and the aftermath of this event has left us with nothing.  I normally would not ask anybody for anything, but any help would be appreciated. I wouldn't wish this on anybody.
