Manchester Attack: Poetry Performed by Friend of Victims Southampton
"Posted by Gerard on May 26, 2017, 11:09 pm
It was a quiet night tonight at The Art House for their "Moving Voices" open-mike monthly hoe-down, so quiet in fact there was no second half after the intermission..until three young teenagers walked through the door..Our concierge then ushered us all upstairs to hear the poem one Mancunian lass had bought with her. She lost two friends but she squared her shoulders and read twice a poem I haven't found on-line but she said; "they're reading this everywhere and they read it at the vigil" She was tiny but her accent was wonderful and her attitude indomitable, it bought our small crew together..we sang; "Don't Look Back in Anger" to a single acoustic guitar. When I spoke to the girls afterwards I told her about the proximity I had experienced more than once to Irish terrorism..I told her straight; "It's community that will prevent it and you guys seem to understand that..Police and army etc. can only do so much..awareness is what will beat them and that's a feeling" She bl**dy sad..she was brave....she hopes to return for the funerals and/or the service of remembrance...""
