Manchester Crisis Points Out the Violence We Are Exposed To Every Day

by Halle Wilson

The Manchester Crisis bombing occurred on May 22, 2017 happened in Manchester, England. [1] In fact, 22 people were killed and 119 people were injured. A lot of them were children which is devastating to hear that children under eight years old trying to enjoy a Ariana Grande concert were hurt or killed. Salman  Ramadan just ruined their experience by coming into a concert and bombed the outside of the concert which was a suicide bomber. [1]

What these poor families went through like no one could imagine. Losing a brother, sister, uncle or wife or husband or even child under eight years old or over then 18 like that’s so tragic. You bring a child into this world and the last thing you would want to do is have  them taken from you. “Tragic, because parents and children died that are under the age of 18,” said junior Edgar Russell. People around the world were watching this around the world was a big topic being talked about because it was just so, tragic.

It’s dangerous and super important to be aware of your surroundings. Because you don’t know who is watching you or planning to do something bad to you or your family so, make sure anyone that you are nice to everyone because you never know what other people are going through. “This terrible event that just recently occurred was a tragedy that happened although we need to hold the group responsible and if force is the only way then be it,” said junior Ian Marron. This terrible event should never happen again especially in the United Kingdom.

No one should ever have to experience tragic loss of a child because children that are growing up in today’s society are the new generation and what they see on TV such as these massacre shootings, African American males getting shot at by police officers, hatred in America really needs to stop. The children of this generation look up at that TV and they probably feel like America will never restore itself again. “America needs to change because this was something that shouldn’t had happened in this time of history. The Manchester event I believe is very sad. I pray for the families that lost loved ones,” said junior Parker Montour. Never again should this happen.

The families that lost children pray for them. May the people that passed Rest In Peace. I also hope Ariana Grande/overcomes this tragic event and hope that America can change in the next few years. Following the aftermath of the Ariana Grande concert she ended up having a concert and raised 2.6 million dollars that night for the families and victims of the attack on Manchester. [NY Times]
