concerts have always been one of my fave events ever since I was in high school. it's a fun + wonderful shared experience that you have with people that you know and those that you don't know, but you are all unified by the love and appreciation for music, and for a musician or a band.
on March 21, 2017, I saw Ariana Grande in concert in Salt Lake City. Me and my good friend had floor seats, and as a huge fan of Ariana and an Arianator, it was one of the greatest experiences of my life. I danced, sung, and screamed as I watched my fellow short, one-dimpled girl amazingly perform and wow the entire arena.
what happened in Manchester is devastating. when I first watched the video of the hundreds of fans running out of the arena carrying their huge pink balloons, I remember when I went in March and how immensely happy I was when I carried my huge pink balloon out of the arena after the concert ended. a concert is a wonderful event. an Ariana Grande concert is an event full of love. praying for Manchester, for Ari, for the helpers, and for the families of the victims.
a very selfish act ending people's lives, including little girls, is extremely heartbreaking. As @sethmeyers
said about the attack, this is a "plea for all of us to not need a tragedy to remind us of the importance of treating those we do not know with love instead of hate." let's always help others as the helpers did after the attack. let's have the utmost love for everyone, as Heavenly Father and the Savior teaches us and does for us. 💜
