A Manchester Memorial


A year on.

I wasn’t there. I only know one person who was there, a work colleague, who has still not returned to work. But it happened here, to us, and when you attack one of us we all stand against you, to show you that we will never let you win. You cannot beat Manchester. To steal the title from the Treme season 1 box-set, Won’t Bow Don’t Know How. We look after our own, we come together, we sing and laugh and dance and you cannot make even the slightest dent against that. And we will honour and remember our own until the world’s end.
