#WeAreNotAfraid: Camila Cabello, JK Rowling, Niall and more come together in the face of London’s horrific terror attack

#WeStandTogether


As we still come to terms with, and get our heads around, the shocking events of the “terrorist incident” outside the Houses of Parliament on 22nd March 2017, we have to also take the time to look within ourselves, and to those around us and say: #WeAreNotAfraid

In an attack that, at it’s current reporting, has left over 40 people injured, and 5 dead, we can’t even begin to even imagine what being on London Bridge at that moment must have been like. The BBC details the PM speaking on the victims today:

They included 12 Britons, three French children, two Romanians, four South Koreans, two Greeks, and one person each from Germany, Poland, Ireland, China, Italy and the United States.

Three police officers were also hurt, two of them seriously.

The message in the aftermath is clear, however. We will mourn. But we will not be broken. Here’s proof of that much needed human resilience:

 

Certain transport links and station remain closed, but the station staff have ensured the vibe is 100% right on:

And then this MP who has been rightfully dubbed a hero for quickly providing first aid to the downed police office outside Parliament, but tragically PC Keith Palmer lost his life:

Paris shut off the Eiffel Tower lights last night in mourning, in remembrance, in respect:

Whereas others showed a display of solidarity in light:

Our faves also gave us words that we so sorely needed:

Our abso fave Camila Cabello also points out that Peru suffering its own terror:

As flooded cities claims more and more lives, our thoughts and prayers are with them too.

Twitter once again proves itself to be a place of just as much light as it can be dark. But this time, the light is shining brighter and stronger than ever. Be safe, y’all.
