I’ve been the whole damn day thinking over and over again about what happened in Manchester. I just can’t even imagine how hard it must be going to see live one of your favorite bands/artists. You were waiting your whole life for it to happen, you go there all hopeful and full of joy and excitement and then you have to experience these horrible moments. And if you are lucky enough to just experience them and make it out of there alive.
Maybe I’m too sensitive and being too overdramatic or whatever you think because “I wasn’t there”, but music has always been too important to me. It has helped me through really hard times in my life and still does every day so it hit me really hard.
And it isn’t just the horrible moments there. Once you get home, you have to deal with all that you experienced. I don’t even know if I’d ever be able to listen to those songs again without being brought back to that day.
And I’m not getting to how the artists must feel, even if it’s so clear that they aren’t the ones to blame. How the hell do you move on and go back to do what you love after these events?
I’m honestly devastated.
