I’ve said this on both Snapchat and Twitter already, yet I still cannot begin to comprehend what has tragically happened in my country last night in Manchester at Ariana Grande’s concert.
The fact Ariana has been hospitalised for her hysterics and inability to calm down over this reduces me to tears while hearing she also holds herself accountable for the attack and is calling herself, quote, “a murderer”. She is not to blame, without a shadow of a doubt, and I have an insanely high respect towards her for cancelling the rest of her Dangerous Woman Tour in honour of those who’ve passed.
To all those who do not have the common decency to at least respect the odd 21 thousand fans in that arena, who have now been traumatised for the rest of their lives, and are asking for their money back from cancelled shows. I beg you, spare a thought for these parents who are asking for their children back; some of which, will never come back.
So far, 22 confirmed deaths have occurred with at least 59 injured, last time I checked, and apparently they’re still counting.
I haven’t been able to focus on anything today as this has been going on, and my thoughts, love, and prayers are all with those who have lost their lives so undeservedly and too soon; along with their families, may you rest in peace.
I’m deeply saddened over these losses; especially from hearing innocent young girls named Gina (18) and Saffie (8) have been named and confirmed to have died, which only furthers my heartbreak.
In addition to this shocking event, I have seen the travesties also over in the Philippines. Marawi, to be exact. My heart is with those affected over in that part of the world as well, you have not been, and will never be, forgotten, you’re all in our hearts.
The world is an incredibly cruel place and it’s times like these where it’s even more crucial to stay together and unite as one to combat these types of attacks and rise above terror. I am proud of our emergency services for the punctuality and dedication they have showed, and are continuing to do so, during this hard time.
Please, everyone, do not be discouraged or afraid to go to concerts in the future, this is not what they are about. They are supposed to be a free space where you can have fun, let go of your inhibitions, and enjoy your time with friends whilst seeing your idol in person. They are a symbol of life, hope, and, most importantly:
Be kind to one another. Love one another. And we will get through this in unity.
