The events of this week have touched and affected many of us. This was a barbaric and brutal attack at a venue many Buzzjackers have been to on young people attending a concert, something every one of us holds close to our hearts. There is nothing more special that seeing your idols perform your favourite songs. Music touches each and everyone of us, and it is what unites us all.
