The current state of the world is such that, because horrific tragedies are occurring so frequently, it’s nearly desensitized people because there’s no time to properly mourn.
Before you can compartmentalize how horrific one tragedy was, another terrorist attack happens somewhere in the world. It never used to be like that.
When the world was mourning the Orlando Florida nightclub shooting, less than just a month later, another terrorist attack occurred in Nice, France where 77 people were killed. Then several months after that, in December 2016, a large truck plowed through a Christmas market in central Berlin, which killed 12 and injured 48 others.
Now another horrendous attack has just occurred, where one of our own homegrown Grammy-nominated pop stars, Ariana Grande, was performing a concert in the North of England on Monday evening.
“22 people have been confirmed dead and around 50 others are injured following reports of multiple explosions after an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester in the North of England on Monday Evening.
Greater Manchester Police originally said there had been a “number of fatalities and others injured” at the Manchester Arena, where Grammy-nominated pop singer Ariana Grande was performing. Nineteen people were confirmed dead as of 8pm EST.
Eyewitness accounts posted to social media show convoys of ambulances moving to the centre of Manchester as thousands of music fans fled the Manchester Evening News Arena.
Armed police used explosives to enter a house in Elsmore Road, Fallowfield, Manchester in the past hour reports the Manchester Evening News, which is understood to be the former residence of the suicide bomber who killed 22 at last night’s Ariana Grande concert.
A neighbour told the paper:
“There were about 20 armed officers in all black with machine guns. There were another 20 uniformed officers who were in the street.
There were also plain clothed officers who were also armed. The road was cordoned off, but there was no evacuation of the street.”
The force subsequently confirmed there had been a ‘controlled explosion’ at the property as part of the investigation.”
Although it was clearly not Grande’s fault, the terrorist bombing understandably devastated her.
from the bottom of my heart, i am so so sorry. i don’t have words.

An 18-year-old who Grande had met was also killed.

And, yes, it was an ISIS terrorist attack, and they are claiming responsibility.

Grande’s mother immediately came to the aid of many fans and ushered them backstage during the chaos.

When an event like this occurs, it begs the question as to whether the world will one day be rid of these vicious and senseless terrorist attacks carried out by horrifying anti-Christian organizations like ISIS and Al Qaeda.
It’s high time for the mass exterminations of these groups, and to rely on President Trump and General James “Mad Dog” Mattis to lead the U.S. and rest of the world there.
