Default Poignant and happy story

Hi

Am sure you all remember the terrible fire in the shopping mall in Qatar last year. Many people died - including several little children.

One family from New Zealand suffered the tragedy of seeing their triplets all die in the fire. I cannot begin to imagine what the parents have been through.

How about this for a triumph of resilience:

The pain of losing their triplets must have been unbelievable, but what a lovely outcome for them!
