Three times the bastards have tried to destroy my community’s spirit. Twice they’ve failed. And they’ll fail a third.

“And these hard times again, in these streets of our city, but we won’t take defeat and we don’t want your pity.”

I visited Manchester as a child, one of my favorite uncles lived there. Your city is not one to cow down. Love to you and the people of Manchester.

May these thugs NEVER win. Thoughts are with you and your city, Harters.

I read this poem as news coverage of this, what?–tragedy? insanity? barbarity?–played on the television and it brought tears to my eyes. So many young people at that concert; children who have never lived in a world free of terrorism. I’m in the US, but I don’t really have much of an appetite this evening either. It’s little solace, but know that people around the world are sending prayers and good thoughts to Manchester :sob:

Know that Bostonians are there with Mancunians in spirit, @Harters. They won’t win. They can’t. We stand united worldwide, shoulder to shoulder. Our thoughts and hearts are with you all.

Thoughts are with you, Harters and Manchester.
