The nail bomb killed 22 people and injured over 50. Britain has not seen an attack this big since 2005. Shortly after the attack, a video surfaced of a possible ISIS member. His face is covered and he states that ISIS takes responsibility for the recent bombing at Manchester Arena.

With so much tragedy in the world today, it’s nice to see open arms once in awhile. One thing is for sure, Manchester stands strong in the face of tragedy. I think it’s safe to say, Manchester is on the minds of many people all over the world.
