And for that selfish moment when I gave thanks that my teenage grandchildren did not go last night to this concert I trust that their young ones are safely home today, and that the nightmare will eventually fade from their minds.
|I walked down to the river today just for the quiet peace that it offered, I walked with this hysterical mutt who kept us up at midnight with her shenigans as we watched the terrible news unfold in Manchester.|
So there has been another terrorist attack, this time in Manchester. Shock hardly describes it for all those parents and grandparents who are having to live through terrible times today, I offer them strength to cope with the waiting for news of loved ones. Praise must of course go to all those people in the emergency services for being there so promptly and coping with a devastating attack on young people, children even. The ability of the community to pull together, taxi-drivers taking the young home for free, hotel managers taking them into their hotels - humanity has a lot going for it and the people of Manchester taught us an important lesson in this wretched time.
