Had a couple of people asking if Holly and I are OK. We’re fine, and as far as I know no-one either of us know was at the arena last night (though it feels creepy enough that we passed through the tram stop in the same building complex barely an hour before).
It’s not the first time Manchester has seen terrorist activity (for those who don’t know, the IRA blew up half the city centre in the mid 1990s) but it’s the first in my lifetime with such a loss of life. I hope all the injured kids recover, and I also hope (though I suspect in vain) that this isn’t used as an excuse to push through ever-more-authoritarian laws that wouldn’t have prevented this.
My thoughts are with the families of those killed, and with those injured.
