A terrible fire in a nightclub has killed 112 people in the city of Perm.

From my experience in these venues I would not be surprised if the majority of these victims were young women who were simply looking forward to an entertaining evening at a local club.

Although I personally have never been to Perm I’ve made a few friends from that city.

I’m aware that tragedies happen all the time.

But because of my proximity and familiarity to these events I am deeply saddened by this disaster.

My thoughts and prayers go out to those who were killed and injured.

Please take a moment out to do the same.
