Tragic Suicide Bombing at Ariana Grande Concert in Manchester, UK
The Management Team of Face Activities wishes to express our deepest sympathies to the victims of the tragic explosion on Monday, at the Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, United Kingdom, and to their families and friends. This monstrous action is thought to be the work of a suicide bomber, intent on committing a heinous act of terrorism.
The concert goers, mostly tween girls, were unprotected, unsuspecting, and innocent. In the aftermath of the explosion, 19 people were killed, and over 60 injured, with numerous concert-goers missing. Family and friends are still searching frantically for loved ones, posting desperate pleas for information on social media.
The act of targeting any public gathering is an outrage, but targeting one predominantly comprising teenagers and tween kids is beyond the pale. Once again the terrorists of our age demonstrate their complete lack of humanity, and morality. And if confirmed as a terrorist attack, the bombing will be the worst on British soil since the subway bombing of 2005.
American Pop Star Ariana Grande was on tour promoting her “Dangerous Woman” album, and issued the following statement on Twitter: “broken. from the bottom of my heart, i am so sorry. i don’t have words.”
