So incredibly sad.  I love concerts, but sadly I have thought about this before while at a loud show – how something could happen.  I wish it was something no one ever had to worry about.  Those poor people, just there to have a good time, and so many of them were so young… 🙁

Ive lived and worked just outside of Manchester for a decade now. Many of my colleagues treated the injured last night in the nearby hospitals. 

Completely in shock and utterly heartbroken at this atrocious, senseless attack. I agree with everyone above who says mancunians are a tough bunch and will get through it.

As I watched the news this morning getting ready for work I just started crying. I am not usually much of an emotional person, but this just hit a really soft place for me. I have no connection to Manchester or anyone there, but I could feel the panic of the crowd, the devestation of the friends and families who lost loved ones, and the desperation of those who cannot locate family members or friends. I cannot imagine what they are all going through including Ariana Grande who wanted to provide a fun and safe environment for her fans. This is so completely awful. My heart breaks for those affected by this act of terror.

Piers Morgan said this morning that we don’t need prayers or more candlelit vigils, we need action. I agree with him.

If I’d lost my sweet daughter last night, I’d want action and revenge. I’d want to hurt the people who hurt her. I don’t care if this is a ‘harsh’ point of view- it’s mine.  I’d want to see justice done.

I hope the bastard rots.

My heart hurts for all affected. Reading about the victims that have been identified is gut wrenching. I cannot imagine what their loved ones are going through.

I’m in London not Manchester but this time it feels weird – there are armed police and soldiers everywhere and the security alert is higher than it was after the Westminster, Brussles, Berlin and Paris attacks recently.  

I’m so glad my friends in Manchester weren’t in the area – they are so shaken and upset though, it’s hard to watch 🙁

I am on the South Coast but I am just so heartbroken about this. There are no words.

jpbee :  We’ve got increased security here in Birmingham. It’s not hugely noticeable, but it’s things like police officers walking the streets which I don’t think I’ve ever seen on my way to work before.

Also, to add to last nights security comments – I don’t think I’ve ever been through a body scanner at a concert?

The loss of so many innocent lives is truly tragic. Arianna Grande has a younger demographic. Who knows how many youngsters (and adults alike) will be traumatized by this event for years to come. Reportedly Arianna Grande is inconsolable. This was extremely traumatizing for her as well. I cannot begin to imagine how people are physically and emotionally suffering at the moment.

According to TMZ her mother Joan was sitting in the front row and we about to go backstage when this started. She ushered many backstage for protection during the confusion. There must be countless more heroes to be recognized. 

There are not words for the innocent lives lost needlessly and those that experienced such a traumatic event.
