Last Sunday morning (09/1) 17 people were killed in a fire that broke out in the Bronx in New York. The crash happened around 11am (1pm Brasilia time). One case that caught my attention was Isaac Drome, who lost three children and his wife. Their son, Muhammad Tramme, was 12 years old.

“One day they will be gone and you will never see them again,” he told the newspaper. Post. “My kids were amazing,” he added.
Tramme, from Gambia, was working in Ohio during the fire and says he is still waiting for the bodies of his family members. “Detectives sent me a confirmation number to say they were all dead, but I could not confirm because I had not yet seen the bodies,” he said. “They send us pictures, but I haven’t seen them yet.”
Without eating for several days, Ishaq was studying his final year of economics at the Fatumala Buffalo University with his daughter, working at the hospital until Nyumaisha started college, and Muhammad was at school.
Tramme visited the Masjid Ar-Rahama Mosque, a part of the lives of 16 of the 19 dead. “Truth be told, I know we are all from Allah and we will all return to Him,” he added.
