Manchester: We All Stand Together

Net Sixty Six SEO stands together with the people of Manchester

Last night, you will have heard about the horrific events at Manchester Arena. Before 10.33 pm, 19,000 people had just seen Ariana Grande’s concert. Many of them were children and teenagers; for some people, this was their first arena gig.

At 10.33 pm, in the foyer area of Manchester Arena, an explosion marred what should have been a joyous night. Twenty-two people lost their lives. A further fifty-nine, injured. When Chief Constable Ian Hopkins said “This has been the most horrific incident we have had to face in Greater Manchester”, he wasn’t mincing his words. This was the worst bombing incident that Manchester has faced in peacetime history. Nobody – yes, nobody – should expect this to be the norm before, during, or after an event of any description.

Only our collective efforts can stop the terrorists. In the last 24 hours, the people of Greater Manchester demonstrated this by offering a spare room for the night. Taxi drivers waived their fares, enabling Ariana Grande fans to leave home safely. In times like this, we all stand together. This is what makes Manchester a great city.

We deplore the cowardice of last night’s attack. Words fail us on the scale of the bomber’s actions, but we mustn’t rise up to their prerogatives. We must carry on, continue to be Mancunian. Continue to help others in need, wherever they are from. From Moston or Mumbai, we are stronger together.

Net Sixty Six SEO would like to offer their condolences to the families of the 22 people, who died after watching their favourite singer. We also like to wish the 59 people, injured by the terror attack a speedy recovery. Our thoughts are with them and their families.

We will not be beaten. We are Mancunian. We all stand together.

A vigil shall be taking place on Albert Square, at 6 pm tonight.
