You may or may not have heard about the tragic news of late, which is that on the 22nd of May 2017 at 10:30pm an explosion was heard throughout Manchester as a bomb was detonated at the end of an Ariana Grande concert. Many children and adults went missing, as they were caught up in the escape out of the Arena, this was heartbreaking for many and my heart does indeed go out to Manchester and to those that suffered the loss of someone close to them.
This was indeed an act of cowardice, the idea that someone would attack the young people who were attending that concert is sickening, I have no other words to describe this attack.
The week after the attack, the UK’s terror threat level rose to critical, this caused fear among many people, even those that said that they didn’t want to live their lives in fear. I myself was meant to attend a Birmingham Pride event, but I didn’t feel as though I could mainly because of the threat level at that time. This for me was a heartbreaking decision because I love going to those events and those events are my life, when I am there I am caught up in the mayhem and the marching and I love it, it makes me feel proud to belong to an amazing and such a loving community.
Please feel free to comment underneath and post your views on this true act of cowardice that took place.
Pray for Manchester
Don’t forget the benefit concert that is going to be featured on BBC One within the UK on Sunday the 4th of June.
