It really makes you question what kind of a world we live in when you come across a video circulating on social media of a broken, battered, bloodied body being forcefully kicked and beaten to a pulp despite it’s soul clearly already having left it.
My heart is so heavy today. Waves keep building in my chest and crashing down through my eyes as tears. I can't seem to focus on work or anything else right now. Although I am physically in Mauritius, my mind is with Manchester and my heart is there too. How could...
