Dr Rev David Walker, the bishop of Manchester, told the service
that the city would never forget those who died on May 22nd last
year. He also pledged lifelong support for the 800 people who
were injured physically or psychologically in the attack.

“Part of the horror is that the Arena appeared to have been de-
liberately chosen as a venue full of young people,” he said.
“Today they are one year into living with those life-changing
injuries, with many decades of continuing to do so lying ahead
of them.

“A society has rituals to mark a death or console the bereaved,
but we lack any any equivalent for those who have lost limbs,
suffered sensory loss or will never recover their confidence
again. Many of the hopes and aspirations they took with them
into the arena that night have gone. Today we mark and
acknowledge their suffering and pledge to play our part in their
future wellbeing here on earth.”

Ariana Grande, who performed at Manchester Arena that night,
sent a message to those hurt in the attack: “Thinking of you all
today and every day. I love you with all of me and am sending
you all of the light and warmth I have to offer on this challenging
day,” she tweeted.

sometimes to the speed my brain (yes l do have
one) is working basically it means “I am playing
