24 May


These are scary and heartbreaking times. My thoughts, prayers, and love go out to all those affected by yesterday’s events. In the aftermath of what happened in Manchester and the UK’s terror threat being raised to critical, I have never felt more proud of my country and its people. I love our spirit, pride, generosity, empathy, diversity and resilience. Yesterday, throughout the unfolding heartbreak, anger, fear, and senseless horror of it all, I read and saw so many things that showed the good and kindness of our country, its people, and the world.

I’m scared. Really scared. We all are.

But I refuse to let the evil threat of a few rule over me. I fiercely love my family, friends, colleagues, workplace, town, city, country and life. And my love and pride burns so very brightly today. And tomorrow it will  burn even more brightly.

I will try not to take for granted how lucky and blessed I am to love and be loved. I will treasure every smile. I will hug that bit tighter, for that bit longer. I will love even more fiercely and tell people how much they mean to me as often and as passionately as I can. I will do everything in my power to make this world a better place and protect everything that I love. And above all else, I believe wholeheartedly, with every fibre of my being, that love and goodness will always outweigh hate.

Keep safe, everyone. Keep vigilant. Keep positive. And most importantly, make the most of every single day, with the people you love.
