Manchester United Stops Practice To Honor Bombing Victims

On Monday night, an unspeakable tragedy struck the city of Manchester. While a number of people of people went to go watch an Ariana Grande concert in the city, what they got was sheer carnage. A detonated explosion claimed the life of 22 people, several of them young children.

On Tuesday, the members of the Manchester United soccer team took a moment to honor the victims with a moment of silence.

Manchester United is currently preparing for the Europa League Final vs. Ajax. No doubt, they will be playing with heavy hearts as their home city was the target of such a horrific tragedy.

Instances like what happened on Monday night put into perspective what is really important. Manchester United will fly to Sweden to play one of their most critical matches of the season, but ultimately, it is only a game. Win or lose, all of the players will return home safely.

Taking a moment of silence, while in a literal sense changes nothing, was a nice show of respect and understanding by the players.
