Twenty-two people were killed and 59 were injured in a suicide bombing at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England on Monday. As residents of the English city are left reeling in the wake of this unimaginable tragedy, the people of Manchester are coming together to help one another.
Manchester residents and businesses are using Twitter to connect with those left stranded after train service was suspended following the attack. The hashtag #roomformanchester is connecting those with a little extra space with concert-goers seeking refuge.
Even people who couldn't offer their rooms found ways to help.
People are also utilizing Twitter to share pictures of loved ones who are still lost in hopes of locating them.
Through the pain and turmoil of this unspeakably horrific tragedy, Manchester is coming together to support each other. A 23-year-old Manchester resident emailed Teen Vogue writer Lauren Duca to give a first-hand account of how the city is doing following the shocking attack.
We in this city have not reacted to this terror attack with vitriol; or with fear. We have not even reacted in open defiance (yet). Our first reaction has been to take to the streets with water, with supplies, to open our homes to those who are stranded and also, sadly, to guide the families who have lost their children through to the centre of a city they don't know. If you do choose to write about us, please know that [we] reacted with kindness, empathy, and love. Not with hate.
