Today, July 4th 2017, would have been the day that Saffie-Rose Roussos, the youngest victim of the Manchester attack, would have turned 9. According to her father, her dream was to be a star, she wanted to be famous like Ariana. So I’d just like to say Happy Birthday Saffie, wherever you are, rest easy - and I ask you to reblog this and give a little girl her wish, and make her name known on her birthday.
Neighbors and ex-friends of the attackers in London told members of the press that they had contacted law enforcement multiple times about one of the alleged attacker’s extremist views, BuzzFeed U.K. reported.
An unidentified man, who said he is a former friend of one of the suspects in the London attack, told BBC Asian Network that he notified police through their anti-terror hotline after hearing several comments about past terrorism attacks.

What do you think about Ariana grande and the charity concert
I think it’s fucking incredible that not even 2 weeks after that happened, she managed to organise the whole thing. I think it’s incredible that every bit of money that is made is going to help the families of those who died and the victims that survived but not without significant pain and suffering. I think it’s pretty incredible that she was apparently in hysterics and inconsolable for nearly 24 hours after it happened, but she came back to the city it happened in to give something good to those people. I think it’s incredible to see the support of so many other artists for the people of Manchester. I think it’s the best thing that could have happened honestly. They wanted us scared, they wanted us to be scared to do what we love, that’s why they targeted the place they targeted. And instead we’ve put on an even bigger show, brought even more people together, spread love and support and acceptance. It’s the most beautiful show of support and the best fuck you to everything the people that plan these attacks stand for.
Before this all happened, I didn’t really pay Ariana any attention, and I wasn’t a fan of her music. But after all of this, and the grace and poise and class that she’s responded to this situation with, I have nothing but respect for her.
