Mistakes have been made. Some people have made those mistakes. Almost surely, mistakes have been not intentional, yet, extremely tragic and costly.
I am not sure if finding the guilty ones will be the panacea to those suffering. It would make sense for Latvian society to demand fixes on the bugs in the system that allowed this happen. To raise responsibility levels of officials, ourselves. To accept responsibility, which comes together with rights that we demand. To step out from the "rat race" ourselves, if we realize that business interests are put ahead of those of human needs for safety, love, respect. Improtant is to start the change with ourselves. To audit our own values and principles. See for ourselves, if love, respect for life, compassion are high enough in our daily routines. Or being very secular is our way.. Stop and think.
But... it will help you, familily, society in general, but not the people who were directly impacted and are suffering still... Support, standing-by, forgiveness, care, kind word, touch, tea, food, blood, donations, compassion, pray will be the few things to really make a difference for lives of people "crushed" by tragedy. I am proud to see reaction of people of Latvia. Tragedy unites. And makes us so human. Regardless of nationality, gender, age, status, people have been supporting, helping, donating, becoming blood donors etc. Making step beyond daily pressures and issues. Putting their own ego aside. And I hope that we will remain in this mode of helping, forgiving, hoping and believing.
