Crematorium Burns Down; Bodies Saved

I am not sure that we should call this today’s feel good story. But still. The event in Germany deserves some mention, because it appears to contain a deeper meaning. What that meaning is, I leave to you:

A fire at a crematorium in southern Germany has caused significant damage to the building — but the 20 bodies stored inside remained intact.

German news agency dpa reported Thursday that the cause of the overnight fire in Schwaebisch Hall, about 175 kilometers (110 miles) southeast of Frankfurt, was still being investigated.

Dpa quoted regional police saying the bodies were largely unharmed by the blaze, which is estimated to have caused about 1.5 million euros ($1.7 million) in damages.

The crematorium burned down, but only the corpses were saved.

Make of it what you will.
