Why us? We were in your neighborhood through the good and bad but this is vile. Our business created jobs for many of your friends and helped them achieve their dreams now it’s literally ashes. Everyday the products we served helped to put out fires in one’s life but now you have ignited one that burns in every person who walked through our doors. We had no part in any violence against anyone but now we are filled with indignant rage. No, we won’t rebuild for you have put us through hell and now you sift through the ashes of our dreams instead.
