Explosion at Ariana Grande concert in England

Recommended Posts

What the blazing hell. No one really knows what happened or indeed how many explosions there were but they're treating it as an act of terror for now (rumors of a suicide bomber).

My heart absolutely breaks for the victims, but I feel terrible for AG as well. Certainly not a fan but how do you get on stage and perform after something like this?  Such an awful world :(

The British police has named the suspect in the terror attack in Manchester last night: Salman Abedi, 22 years old, born in the UK but of Libyan descent.

Some of the comments have been horrific and insensitive

There's an update to Stephen Jones. A man named David Sullivan, along with his son rented a house for 6 months for Stephen Jones so he has a place to live rent-free while he gets back on his feet.  Hopefully he will but depending on how long a period of homeless Jones has experienced, he may need additional support for rebuilding (skills & job training, emotional/psychological help) his life.

Chris Parker, another man, also homeless, helped at the bombing site.  Apparently, his estranged Mother saw him on the news and claims that she wants to get in touch with him and rebuild their relationship. She said she had no idea he was homeless.  I don't know why they are estranged but hopefully this is a genuine desire as he could probably use some help recovering his life.

Despite all this terror and tragedy, humanity has shown itself. Maybe for these two men, the community can have a closer look at how they became homeless in the first place to root out the causes and help others in the future.

 

Still, knowing the fate of those victims, teenage girls, their parents, grandparents, friends- there's really no bright side to that.
