In the days after the deadly terrorist attack in Manchester at the concert of Ariana Grande and many have turned to the pop star with good wishes and words of support on social networks.
One of these letters was an appeal to the singer on twitter Patrick Millsaps, father of three children living in Georgia, USA. His words struck a chord with Internet users, and the tweet became viral. At the moment it was read by more than 60,000 people.
“I’m the father of three daughters, they are 13, 12 and 12 years. You were part of our family for many years, wrote Millsaps, when I read your tweet in which you write that you are sorry about the victims of the terrorist attack that took place in Manchester, I realized that I can not write you. Consider what I write to you as a father. You have nothing to apologize for. If some jerk gets drunk and someone knock on his car near your hotel in Manchester, it’s not your fault. If on the night before the concert, the city will fly the tornado and was tragically killed a few people who were going to your concert, it’s not your responsibility. Terrorism is a terrible evil, but evil that you can neither stop nor prevent. You have nothing to be ashamed of. You did your job. You sang songs that millions love. And no crazy coward should not become a reason for your feelings of guilt and depression.
Be alone with God, with family and friends, they will give you support and strength. In a pinch, hell I eat doughnuts, it helps! You deserve it! When and only when you’re ready, on behalf of all dads who love … hmm … whose daughters love your music, go on stage and sing. Music is the language of the world. Every time you go on stage and sing, you make this shitty world a little less shitty”.
We will remind, the singer has canceled all performances until 5 June, while the fate of the tour remains in limbo.
