Manchester, my heart goes out to you. The fact that someone had enough hate in their heart to carry out such an attack should be unfathomable, but unfortunately, it’s not. We’ve seen attacks like this before, we’ve even seen attacks worse than this. All of these young people and adults went to this concert filled with excitement and joy to see someone that they look up to perform live, but their night ended in tragedy due to people fueled solely by hatred. The world needs love. When tragedies like this occur, faith in humanity can either be lost or found. At first, I thought about how screwed up the world is, but then, I saw the outpouring of love and support that people were giving to Manchester and the victims. There is unadulterated hate in this world, but ultimately, there is more love than hate. This world is filled with warmth and love, we all need to show it more often. It shouldn’t take a tragedy for all of the love the world has to be shown. I send all of my love to the victims, families and friends of victims, and Ariana. I will also say that even though people idolize Ariana, they still need to realize that she is still human. She has the right to grieve however she needs to. She loves her fans, there is no way to know what she’s feeling right now. Give her space, let her grieve. I truly hope that one day the world will be free from all of this hatred and that nothing like this will ever happen again.
“I guess you don’t know what you got til it’s gone, Pain is just a consequence of love, I’m saying sorry for the sake of us.” From My Everything, by Ariana Grande.
