A Candlelit Vigil for the dead and bereaved of the bombing outrage in Manchester has been held in the city of Portsmouth this evening at Guildhall Square
Hundreds of people gathered at Guildhall Square for a vigil to remember the 22 people killed and 64 injured when a suicide bomber blew himself up at the Manchester Arena on Monday night.
The vigil was held to allow all communities to come together to grieve and to show solidarity with the families who are trying to come to terms with the death and injury of loved ones who had gone to a music event expecting to be safe from harm.
“We come together, to show unity and to show solidarity at this difficult time,” “It is vital we do not allow the advocates of hate and division to use this atrocity to divide us. This would hand them their greatest victory.”
“Our greatest weapon against hate is unity. Let us join together in humanitarian solidarity with the people of Manchester.”
Candles prayers and poems where, in an event for all faiths and none.
