As soon as citizens around the Manchester Arena realized what had happened, tweets began going viral using #roomformanchester.
Apartment owners, hotel employees, cab drivers & tons more reached out to victims after the bombing at Ariana Grande's show promising beds, chargers, food, water or even just shelter away from the scene and an easier accessible point for parents to locate their missing kids.
This is what to focus on. The victims and the community that came together. That's what combats the evil thinking behind such a heinous act.
Acts like #manchester will always exist, but let us focus on the heroes that arise rather than give the villains the attention they want.— Joseph (@asweatyrat) May 23, 2017
