The night of May 22, 2017 was a tragic one for the music community, as a suicide bombing a concert from pop star Ariana Grande at the Manchester Arena killed 22, injured more than 500 and devastated the world.
Two weeks later, Grande and a host of A-list musical acts convened in the city for One Love Manchester, a benefit concert to raise money for victims and use the power of music to come together in the name of healing.
On Tuesday morning, Grande tweeted out her thoughts about the one-year anniversary of the attacks, extending her love and well-wishes to those affected:
thinking of you all today and every day 🐝 I love you with all of me and am sending you all of the light and warmth I have to offer on this challenging day
— Ariana Grande (@ArianaGrande) May 22, 2018
And all around Manchester and the greater United Kingdom, tributes and memorials were put on to honor the victims and remember the horrible events of that day.

May all those affected find healing, and may those who died in the attack rest in peace.
