The children of Manchester are wondering why, like all of us. A rising pop princess puts on a concert designed to bring people together and to sing for her generation suddenly is thrown into the chaos brought about by hate and terror.
All of a sudden the children of Manchester are a little less safe than they once where and the same could be said for the Children of Chattanooga. Now is a time to keep calm and to blame those who did this and not those who by ethnic and genetics are connected to them. We must seek justice for those kids and the others who died on May 22, 2017 but not at the price of the souls of England or elsewhere where terror has wreaked its ugly head. Perhaps we should look inward too as to what we can do to calm our own communities so things like this won’t happen again.
From Sandy Hook to Columbine there is too much violence that is rearing its vile and evil soul. Too many kids are caught in the crossfire of adult hate and have become victims of a hate-filled game.
Ariana Grande should know that she is not to blame for this, she was doing her job entertaining people and helping them forget about their cares for a while. We all need to have that freedom to remove ourselves from what danger the world is in for a bit. In this time we remember those children in Manchester and everywhere that violence and fear have made people scared.

Music is to bring people together for a common experience. Things like this should never happen, but they do. God be with those who have passed and those who are injured as well as Ariana Grande tonight.

I didn’t know a whole lot about Chris Cornell until I saw a interview with him on CBS News. He was a leader in the early grunge rock scene. Recently he had been doing some soundtracks for movies. He seemed like a brilliant talent that is now no longer with us. A tragic loss for his family and the music community.
Just a little classic NKOTB to keep us all going. Hang tough good people.
Remembering Prince, who left us way too early a year ago. Thanks for the music great purple one. Remember, Let’s go crazy while partying like it’s 1999 in his honor.
Just a little something from an amazing talent who’s entertained generations. Barry Manilow is simply good.
