Community respond to terror with acts of kindness
James Corden, the host of CBS’s Late Late Show, summed up the spirit of the Manchester, England, in a tribute to that city on the night of the terrorist attack that left 22 dead and 120 injured.
“When I think of Manchester, of the place that I know, I think of the spirit of the people there and I’m telling you, a more tight-knit group of people, you will be hard-pressed to find.”
Stories on social media and in the news have emerged to prove Corden right. Shortly after the attack, Mancunians (as they are called) rushed to offer free taxi rides, open their homes to those fleeing the attack, assist emergency personnel and help reunite victims with their families:
• A number of taxi drivers offered free rides to victims, including “AJ” who put up a “Free Taxi” in his cab after the attack.
