I didn’t know if I was going to write this post. Watching and listening to the news has been heartbreaking because innocence was targeted. I don’t understand it and I don’t think I ever will. It’s hard to put into words the sadness at the loss of life. So many others feel this way too, not knowing what to do or say.
This wasn’t a monument or a political rally, this was a concert full of young people enjoying their lives. My sister and I have been going to concerts since we were 4 years old. We go to arena shows just the two of us, or with our Mum a few times a year. Seeing these poor young ladies, the same age as my baby sister, killed doing something they love hurts beyond belief.
In the face of horror Manchester has shown itself to be a city of hope and resilience. People have come together in their grief to support and love one another. You cannot fault the emergency services in this because they make our country proud.
We won’t forget those who were lost, we won’t let terror divide us.
We are with you Manchester, now and forever
