As Tony Walsh put it in his poem ‘This is the Place’ during the Manchester vigil:

And there’s hard times again in these streets of our city,

But we won’t take and we don’t want your pity,

Because this is the place where we stand strong together,

With a smile on our face, Mancunians forever.

 

Because this is the place in our hearts, in our homes,

Because this is the place that’s a part of our bones,

Because Manchester gives us such strength from the fact,

That this is the place. We should give something back.

 

Always remember. Never forget. Forever Manchester.

 

Choose love.
