Manchester Bombing 2017

The positive power of social media and also its negative side have been highlighted in different ways and through different stories over the past few weeks. While Katy Hopkins finally paid the price for her often pernicious and vitriolic comments, the Manchester bombing saw the media use the internet to help reunite families separated during the horror of that attack.
The scene set around me, as the emergency services seemed to fall from the sky. Shrapnel wounds, groups huddled together, fathers comforting mothers, comforting children. I made my way through the city, now laced with armed officers, uncertainty ricocheting through the streets and returned to our studios for a night of rolling news. The show no presenter ever wants to host.
As tragedy after tragedy unfolds on our own doorstep here in the UK it becomes a little easier for me to imagine the kind of horror people fleeing war have experienced - the horror they are running from and the horrors they have seen while trying to get their families to safety.
Council leader Richard Leese says she's been 'exemplary' in the wake of the Manchester bombing.
The 38-year-old was the 19th person arrested following the attack.
I stopped watching the news during my first pregnancy. Footage of war-ravaged far-away nations and desperate faces clung to my nightmares. I imagined myself as the mother of every ill-fated child, crossing choppy seas on flimsy boats, shipwrecked on swollen shores. The tragedy of every lost soul shook the walls of my womb.
Unity is a constant, worthwhile struggle. Let's try every day to create connections as Raheal did, break through barriers, and have the strength to question, reflect and demand more of ourselves.
'It’s not easy to always choose love, especially in moments like these, right?'
Tweets calling for the group to "have a little respect" suggest that what a woman wears bears more importance than her actions. Little Mix didn't "make it about themselves" by wearing "skimpy" outfits, any more than Liam Gallagher made it about himself by wearing an orange raincoat.
We have some big choices to make this week. From whether we go to that concert, or allow our children on that school trip and, of course, we have an election we need to get out and cast our vote for.
