    All those killed and maimed and for the families where somebody will never come home..

    Nobody has posted on this. Don't know if this post skirts the forbidden topics, if so please remove.

    Well, it isn't political to say your heart breaks for those kids and their families.

    When I was a kid, for the most part you could go to a music show and feel free, feel safe.

    I don't know if kids today can say the same.

    There was a thread that went entirely sideways so it was removed from public view.

    Very sad. I don't have any kids myself but this must truly be gut wrenching for parents.

    Messed up all around. Messed up that it happens; messed up that things happen that
    make people want to do things like this, and messed up that things are not going to change.

    A horrible tragedy. My thoughts & prayers go out to everyone affected by this senseless act. Our children are adults now, but I can't comprehend how I'd feel if this had happened to them.

    My daughter is 15 which is a prime age for Ariana fans, so I can't stop imagining myself in their position.

    I am off to see Clapton in London on Thursday, and I'm not so worried about being blown up myself, but if it was my daughter going I would be scared ****less.

    What's really depressing is imagining the world we could have if we somehow overcame our seemingly ingrained propensity for acting that way.

    When the news alert appeared in my company email I immediately thought of the UK Maiden tour. I'm glad you're safe. Not that this is less horrible for any other show, It's just the connection of fellow Maiden fans and wasn't sure where they were in the tour over there.

    absolutely awful tragedy and even more so that its becoming so common place. Thoughts and prayers are with all those who have been affected by all this senseless insanity.
