God Bless Manchester.

I have waited and thought all morning wondering should I say something. I have come to the conclusion that I should. 

Manchester was rocked and shocked last night after the Ariana Grande Concert at The Manchester Arena a suicide bomber set off a bomb and so far 22 people are dead and 59 are injured, many life threateningly. Information here

     God Bless Manchester

God bless Manchester,you have heart

You all pull together last night

When lives were blown apart.

People helped each other,they did what was right.

Why attack innocent children

“In the name of God”, that’s wrong!
God, whatever name you give them

Would never want you kill, especially not the young.


I best not say anymore though my heart is full of words. I send love and hope to the families whose lives have been shattered and changed in a split second. All this on a night when they were out for fun. A night when whoever did this knew the arena would be full of youngsters and children with parents.

    We heard the news yesterday about this time. It’s always shocking and heartbreaking that anything like that can happen. I fear for this world of ours. Glad you’re all right, Willow. πŸ’–

      This is a sick world where children where ever they are from can be the targets of mad, bad and evil people. Thank you for caring, apart from being so saddened I am fine. I live in the South of England but North or South we are united against evil. πŸ’œπŸ’–

        We here in the US are also united with you. Most Americans have a deep affection for England and are empathetic. (In spite of us having a circus for a government at the moment.)

    I am glad you shared your heart. I truly believe speaking out is another way to stand up to such violence and hate. I pray for everyone involved, and from across the Atlantic I felt hope when I watched the people of Manchester step up to help, never hesitating for a second. Thank you for sharing your words.
