Just a quick little drawing I felt compelled to doodle  in light of the devastating news from Manchester. 

Music is often celebrated for its ability to unify. Today we are unified in sadness and grief and the horrific feeling of hopelessness. ‬

‪We go to concerts for escapism or to languish in the emotions the music evokes for us. To force fear, pain, and devastation into a situation intended to create happiness and joy is nothing other than sick. ‬

‪For many of those gig goers it was a night they'd marked in their diary with enthusiastic annotations, an event they saved pocket money for, perhaps even their first experience of the wonder of live music. The fact that some of them aren't returning home is an unbearable to think about. ‬

‪Considering like many of us, I feel lost for words, I've already gone on too long, but I just wanted to send my love to all those impacted by last night's events. ‬
