Dad writes open letter to Ariana Grande after a bomb blast killed 22 people at her Manchester concert on Monday night.
Patrick Millsaps, a father of three daughters, has written a letter that has since been retweeted on Twitter nearly 5,000 times.
“Dear Miss Grande,
I am the father of three daughters — ages 13, 12 & 12. So, you have been a part of our family for years,” he began.
Since you are a part of our family and after reading a tweet you posted on the Twitter the other night; I’m afraid I need to set you straight girl. So listen up and receive some redneck love from a daddy of daughters.
You are no more responsible for the actions of an insane coward who committed an evil act in your proximity than you would be for a devastating natural disaster or acts of morons near your hotel.”
He went on to say Grande should be thoughtful about her next step and not feel she is responsible for her fans the continuation of her tour.
In your line of work, you have so many experts who are now ‘strategising’ what you should do next … these ‘experts’ don’t have a freaking clue what you are processing right now.
When and only when you are ready, SING AGAIN. Music is the international language of peace. Every time you open your mouth and share that incredible God-given gift to the world, you make this crappy world a little less crappy.
Take care of you first. Fans aren’t going anywhere.”
