My #dailywood . Each day first thing I go for a walk in the woods behind my home and try to came back with a piece of wood for my burner. I also get to listen to an audio book. Today, Frodo left Hobbiton. Things are exciting in a safe way. But not for long. Today's wood was hiding in the undergrowth. It looked very ordinary but now I have it against the wall I'm not so sure.
Grenfell Tower, 2017. Grenfell Tower, social housing in the wealthiest borough in the wealthiest city in Europe, burned with horrific speed, killing 79 people in the early hours of 14th June 2017. The fire rapidly spread up the cladding added during recent upgrading and beautification works. Victims were a snapshot of modern London: all ages, all races, all religions. But London is changing fast, and the poor are treated with little concern, merely obstacles to be hidden from view when they can't be forced out. Tragedies like this should never be allowed to happen. They cannot happen again.
