In the wake of the evil attack in Manchester on Monday the 22nd of May 2017, the whole nation stands together in shock, heartbreak and solidarity for the victims and their families. There are no words that can truly sum up the senseless barbarism that caused this tragedy or do justice to the bravery of the people affected by it. But as I am a writer, language is the only currency with which I can pay my respects to all those lost and suffering: allow me to share with you these few words.
Only light can conquer darkness
Only courage can transcend fear
Only unity can heal division
Only love can vanquish hatred.
Manchester, we love you.
