Manchester !

I woke to a description of the appalling aftermath left by a suicide bomber in Manchester!
For several years I used Victoria station to get to work...I know it well.
The Arena wasn't built then....the streets around the station were scruffy and presumably pulled down to build a concert hall!
The cathedral isn't far away and that's where I should be this morning...
The wickedness of a suicide bombing in such a crowded place full of happy young girls is extraordinary.
What sort of person went to a concert , saw the joy of young people at a pop concert and then detonated hell!
Many people were caught by bolts, presumably packed into a rucksack to deliver even more deaths and injuries. I heard them described as "dockland confetti"
The killer had determined to cause as many deaths as possible. And as many injuries...
As well as grieving for those caught by the blast, for the families waiting for news of their loved ones I am wondering about the mindset of the killers...
Islamic terrorism in a place I know so well was until this morning unthinkable..
Here in Cornwall all I can do is pray...for all those affected, for those who are left hurt and for those who are waiting for news of their loved ones..
Dear God give strength to those who are hurting..and those who have lost a loved one.
