Empire State Building Turns Dark for Manchester Tragedy
It's sadly too true.
In wake of the horrific bombing in Manchester, England on Monday evening of May 22nd, New York City has turned out its lights in remembrance of all the victims impacted by the suicide.
The attack was at a concert by singer Ariana Grande, which left 22 dead and 59 other injured as of today. Among the 22, a 8-year-old little girl.
The suicide bomber died in the attack.
According to a Twitter post, the USA landmark will remain dark for the rest of tonight (May 23rd) "in deep sympathy for the lives lost in Manchester, England."
We send out all of our love and deepest condolences to all those affected by this tragedy.
UNITY is all we have left in this exact moment.
