WE HOPE THAT EVERYONE IN THIS NETWORK AND THEIR FAMILIES ARE SAFE AFTER MONDAY’S ATROCITIES AND OUR THOUGHTS AND HEARTS GO OUT TO THOSE THAT HAVE SUFFERED AS A RESULT OF IT.
But one thing that I think we’ve all taken from Monday’s horrendous act of evil, is that we live in an amazing city, with such a strong sense of community.
There is so much kind out there and so much good and that has become so apparent after Monday’s events. I know it gives me hope in such a dreadful time.
With community in mind, we come back to a community that we’ve built. A community of bloggers, of vloggers, of content creators. Of creative, talented people, based here in Greater Manchester and even wider.
I think about friends that I’ve made through this community, how I’ve grown being part of this community and how I hope we can always continue to provide that for others.
I am proud to call Manchester my home and I’m proud to know all of you, even if it’s only in a small way or on this crazy thing that we call “social media”.
But we are still here, we are the lucky ones. We are the ones that can stand united, in love, in support and in community.
We love you guys and we look forward to growing together.
