On Monday night a suicide bomber set off an explosion after Ariana Grande’s concert at the Manchester Arena. Twenty-two people were killed, 59 were injured, and the entire world was left shaken by an attack perpetrated against a young audience.

The bomber was killed in the explosion and has since been identified as 22 year-old Salman Abedi of Manchester. A 23 year-old man was also arrested in connection with the attack Tuesday morning. Tuesday afternoon, ISIS claimed responsibility for the act of terrorism.

Manchester police are beginning to release information on the victims of the attack, the first two to be named are 18 year-old Georgina Callander and 8 year-old Saffie Rosie Roussos. The 26 year-old John Atkinson was named by friends on Facebook.


Grande has suspended her tour indefinitely in the aftermath and tweeted out to her fans that she’s going to need time, like all of us, to process the event.

It is at times like these when we see the worst but also the best of humanity. After the attacks the city of Manchester has pulled together and offered transportation, shelter, phones, blood and support to those affected. Hospitals have even reported that they have more than enough blood to treat the victims of the attack. It’s heartwarming to see such a supportive response from the whole world at times like these.

Celebrities and world leaders have expressed condolences, support and mourning over social media and through public statements.

In such times of devastation it is certainly uplifting to have overwhelmingly supportive responses from communities and individuals around the world.
