Sequel to my boy, his pound and the slot machines at Eastbourne Pier

In January 2014, I wrote about taking my son to the slot machines at Eastbourme Pier. It was a bit of fun, but also to show him that for some people, it can develop into a vice which grips them into a gambling deadend. Here is the link to that post

Less than a year from that outing - the Pier was sadly ablaze and the main part to be burnt down was the arcade with all the slot machines in. Some had tumbled to the beach underneath.

My son was terribly upset when he saw the news - but it gave us food for thought. Perhaps God was displeased with gambling and allowed the fire to devour it? Who knows.
