Police and kids dancing at Manchester concert becomes a symbol of defiance
During the One Love Manchester concert, Ariana Grande and her friends paid tribute to the victims of the terrorist attacks in Manchester and London.
But perhaps the most emotional of them all was this video of a policeman dancing in a circle while holding hands with children and concertgoers:
The “Ring around the rosie” touched many people’s hearts because it embodied Manchester’s and London’s spirit of defiance and resilience.
People were moved to tears:
I completely broke at this moment 😭💕
