N-O SA NE INVATAM MINTE NICIODATA / WE’LL NEVER LEARN

Post availble in English and Romanian
Am urmarit azi noapte inmarmurita, pana tarziu, desfasurarea tragicelor evenimente din clubul Colectiv. O lume intreaga stie acum despre ce e vorba, simt ca nu mai e nevoie sa intru in amanunte. Din pacate, oameni pe care ii cunosc bine, fosti colegi, au fost acolo, iar una dintre fostele mele colege este in stare destul de grava. Nici in cele mai urate vise nu imi pot imagina ce au simtit oamenii ramasi in club in acele momente de groaza. E doliu national pentru trei zile, se cauta raspunsuri si vinovati. Nimeni nu isi invata insa lectiile, prin cate astfel de momente mai trebuie sa trecem ca sa ne invatam minte? Tragediile se intampla, nu pot fi prevenite, vinovati vor exista intotdeauna, dar pagubele pot fi minimalizate. “Sa intelegem cum s-a intamplat si ce sa facem in viitor pentru a preveni aceste lucruri” zice Ponta … Eu ma intreb ce mai e de inteles? Last night I watched terrified how the tragic event from the Colective Club unfolded. The whole world now knows about this tragedy, I feel like there’s no need for details. Unfortunately, people I know, former colleagues were there. One of my former colleagues is struggling for her life. I can’t imagine, not even in my nightmares, what the people trapped in the burning club must have felt. The authorities declared 3 days of national mourning, they are looking for answers and people to blame. Still, nobody learns from the past, how many of these tragedies must we face to have a prompt reaction? Tragedies happen, nobody can prevent them, but the damages can be minimized.
We must understand what happened and what we can do in the future to prevent this” said Ponta, the PM. I ask myself: What’s there to comprehend?
