I wrote the second part of the coffee chat last week, before the shocking news about the Manchester arena terrorist attack, and planned to post it after the weekend. However with all that’s happened, with the many images of desperate parents trying to find out more about their children impressed in my mind, I, like many other bloggers and vloggers, don’t really feel like posting anything. Out of respect for the victims of this horrible tragedy and their families.

Don’t let the lightheartedness of what I wrote in the next post trick you in thinking that we’re OK. Some may argue that life has to go on, and it does, yes. But not knowing who these families are doesn’t excuse us from being insensitive. I wanted to write more on this, however I will leave it at that. At least for the time being.

The youngest victim was only 8 years old. News is that her mother is unconscious and doesn’t know what happened to her little girl. There are no words. RIP little one.

  1. Thanks for writing these words, they have all been in our hearts and minds. The world has changed but we as people can only become stronger and a more United Kingdom.

      1. It’s horrific and cruel. You are right in saying we all press on, carrying on with life but the thoughts are there still for those effected and those lives wasted or now irreparable
