  1. never again putting pyrotechnics inside an indoor venue, including those shooting guns to the sky tradition! that's just plain unnecessary. Could have been avoided

  2. See rich people showing wealth at its finest… how stupid everyone know fireworks cant be used inside.. and they failed to do right decision to not use it… but yeah you wanted insta picture so you killed many.. this couple only is reponsible for outcome..

  3. Как там не хватало Божьей мудрости…..😢

  4. This is what a peaceful day in Iraq looks like

  7. I am so sorry for all those that lost a loved one😢😢

  8. What did they expect?

  9. If they want that kind of wedding they should have done it in a non restricted area and. It should be done outside in a wide area

  10. Fire cannons INDOORS in a banquet room full of people. Great idea.

  11. I wonder how people get too emotional with weeding…why fire pirotecnhics ?

  12. So sad and awful. My heart goes out to the victims and their families.

  13. That’s so sad! I pray peace and strength to their families! 😢🙏

  14. Sending my deepest condolences to all those affected by this. It’s supposed to be a special day for the bride and groom it breaks my heart… 😢 . I never really got that but a wedding is supposed to be beautiful! I’m always afraid of people who want to do harm just because they think it’s right! #mentalheathawareness

  15. Why do people nowadays, need so much luxury and explosions??? How much do you need to fill your egos! Get in touch with God to bring you humbleness, love and you'll be fulfilled as a simple person! People are experiencing these massive voids that they're doing extreme things for the world to see and to be in the center of it all! Such a shame they don't listen either to the truth, they refuse it.

  16. They must've been someone important, more like an attack.

  17. 🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏❤❤❤❤❤❤

  18. Thats what happens when you have to prove you'r rich!

  22. Imagine lighting up fireworks inside
