    Hi All,

    I know this isn't footy related but thought it worth putting in here.
    I just listened to the press conference with the poor man who lost 11 members of his family in a house fire in Slacks Creek, south of Brisbane.

    I couldn't help but feel for this guy and feel totally shocked and upset by the tragedy.

    Listening to him, it is hard to imagine that I have any problems in the world, when compared to this poor man.

    All I ask is that you all spare a thought for these poor people, and if you feel you have a problem today, think about this poor man, and forget your troubles, if only for 24 hours.

    100% right Dan, what a tragic situation. You can't help but feel a little of his pain when you realize how much was taken from him.
