I feel totally and utterly helpless sat here at home at gone midnight in the fight against terror after the Manchester suicide bombing. I have given blood and offered shelter....but as I lie here in my bed....unable to sleep yet again......I feel it's not enough. A friend of mine has a son who has lost his 8 year old school friend to the Islamic State. A beautiful life. Cut short. Gone in a flash. That could have so easily been my daughter for we were looking at going to that concert ourselves but we chose Olly Murs instead. So I lie here anxious. Our city is in a state of critical terror alert and most of the reporting seems to be all about the suicide bomber with snipppets about the victims and I'm ANGRY. I'm angry that we are not focusing on the beautiful lives that have been lost. I'm angry that this bomber is getting the publicity. So I want to set up a fund for the families of the victims. To help support them through this awful tragedy. Imagine this was your son or daughter. Imagine.
So please please give. And if you can spare £15 or more then please also email me and I will send you a lovely red Swarovski crystal 18 inch sterling silver love heart necklace that I want people to wear to REMEMBER the beautiful lives lost in the Manchester bomb. Every time it is worn, the victims are loved and remembered and the bomber will get forgotten. The necklace is a symbol of our love for these people.
Please email me with your name and address if you have given £15 or more to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will immediately send you confirmation that I will send you your necklace of remembrance.
All my love goes out to the families affected by this tragedy and especially to those who are suffering the most unimaginable grief right now. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

I am feeling totally helpless, terrified and shocked about the Manchester MEN Arena Bombing this week. I have offered blood, transport and shelter to people from the city centre but its not enough. I want to raise funds with a memorable gift (a necklace) for the victims. xxx.
