I feel I need to pay tribute in my blog this week after the horrible scenes and footage of the terrible extrocites that took place at Manchester Arena, on Monday evening.
I will never give in to terror, and I am still gonna go to gigs, and meet up with my friends and family, as I feel we need to carry on, not allow ourselves to be beaten by these cowardly acts.
I have made various travels to the northern part of britain, following a rugby team, some years back, and they were some of the best times of my life. Having sing offs against the northern crowd, and making friends whilst up there too.
Sport and music are two things that will bring people together, and next time I am at a gig I am gonna sing even louder, and when I am at a football or a rugby match I am gonna cheer even louder.
We need our voices to be heard, and we will not allow terror to stop what our brits do the best, which is sing and shout our voices as high as we can, and say NO MORE TERROR, take it away from the world, as we will not allow TERROR beat us in any way.
There is a song called “Landslide” written by Stevie Nicks, which says a lot of words, and I discovered the tune, from an advert advertising dog food. I know strange but true, and I love the song. When listening to the song, I kept thinking, “How come I haven’t heard this song before now” especially as it is sung by a lady I have seen in concert, and whom I love the music of.
In the song it talks about how we build our world around, our children and the things we love, which we should do, and not allow anyone stop us from enjoying the things we love.
How ever hard life can be, no matter how many hurdles we have to climb, we need to carry on for our own pride and if we need to cry, let it out, if we need to shout, go for it, and then take a deep breath, and focus on the things that you love, what helps get you up in the morning.
Many thanks for reading,
