Attack on Sophie Lancaster and Robert Maltby, August 2007

In the early hours of 11 August, Sophie Lancaster and Robert Maltby were attacked by a number of teenage boys, while walking through a park in Lancashire. 

Robert was knocked unconscious, and Sophie was kicked, stomped on, jumped on, and viciously beaten. After the attack, Police said that they were both beaten so badly that they could not tell the genders of the victims. Both Sophie and Robert were hospitalised as a result of the attack. Robert’s injuries left him in a coma with bleeding on the brain, which he gradually recovered from, but was left with lasting brain damage. Sophie’s injuries were much worse, however, and was in a coma indefinitely. Her family switched off her life support on 24 August, after doctors confirmed that she would never regain consciousness. 

5 teenage boys were arrested in connection with the attack, but only 2 were charged with murder. Brendan Harris and Ryan Herbert were sentenced to life imprisonment, for the murder of Sophie Lancaster. The other 3 boys were sentenced to several years jail time, for grievous bodily harm with intent.

Thoughts and prayers are with those who were affected by today's attacks in Tehran.

Only a few days after the attacks in London it is shocking and heart breaking that these terrorists have now hit somewhere else that I consider so close to me.

No only is there an attack on the parliament building, somewhere that is meant to represent a place of democracy, but also on a shrine.

2 separate attacks in one day. Unfortunately 5 (now 12) people have already been reported as killed and there are still ISIS terrorist in the parliament building. I hope that the authorities are able to quickly and safely resolve the situation without anymore civilian casualties.

Thoughts and prayers are with everyone who may have been affected by today’s attacks. We must stand together and stand strong against all forms of extremism and terrorism.

Concerts should be a happy and safe place. A place where we can escape from the problems of everyday life and feel the music do its magic. A place where we can enjoy ourselves, let the music take us to places where we’ve never been before. Concerts are an experience most of us cherish forever. As I said, our happy place.
Our parents shouldn’t be wondering if we’ll get home safe from a show, an event like this shouldn’t happen in the first place but the world is filled with hatred.
I’m in shock, I feel like they attacked my home. Because concerts are my home, my happy place.
When tragedies like this happen it just hits us that no matter what we do, there are some things we don’t have control on. All we can do is spread love and hope for the best.
My heart is aching and my thoughts are with everyone involved in this horrible event.
May love conquer fear and hatred. May love bring our peace back.
