One Word: Manchester

Filed under: current events — Tags: — paulthinkingoutloud @ 4:26 am

And so, another city joins the list of places which, in a single word signifies another location where terrorism has taken place. For the foreseeable future, one will simply say “Manchester” and that’s all they’ll need to say.

This is what we knew at 11:00 PM (New York Time) when we were starting to put together tomorrow’s article here. I decided to just forego that plan…

Here are some Tweets from last night:

  • Terrorists are targeting music concerts now.What a shame!! What’s the problem with these horrendous creatures?
  • No one should have to worry about a terrorist attack when going to a concert or even just in everyday life.
  • Absolutely heartbreaking reading tweets of parents looking for their children
  • There is a woman on CNN hysterical crying and trying to find her missing 15 year old daughter. As a mother of two children I can’t imagine what she’s going through.
  • I just woke up & got the news. I’m crying right now, why does something like this need to happen in our world!
  • Thank you for the concern and love, I am fine. 19 people can not say the same though, sick and twisted act, prayers to everyone
  • Concerts are supposed to be a safe space. So saddened and terrified by the attack
  • Sad, not only have they lost lives in Manchester. Ariana doing something she loves, name will be forever linked now!
  • Not only is the Manchester show a horrific tragedy but it also takes away the peace of mind that people will have at concerts in the future.
  • Cowards bombing concerts with little girls and teenagers. Zero tolerance from now on!
  • I have been to so many concerts already this year, which makes Manchester even more difficult to hear about
  • I feel ill, sick and ill. I can’t mentally deal with this. This can’t go on. It’s already been the norm for years.
  • Bewildered by the reports that there was no security at a concert filled with CHILDREN and YOUNG KIDS
  • Our hearts are breaking. Prayers for all who attended, their families, Ari and her whole crew.
  • Manchester attack eyewitness Chris Pawley: there was no security whatsoever.
  • “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.” ~MLK 
  • Music halls are the purest non-denominational churches where we all can congregate to share magic. My heart is with Manchester tonight.
