The world stopped for many Brits yesterday as news of a terror attack at an Ariana Grande show, which killed more than 20 and wounded dozens more, ricocheted around the world. Last night was about the details of who, what, where, when, and how. Still to be answered is why.

Today, however, was about people coming together to grieve, and, more importantly, show our humanity. These attacks don't tear people apart – they bring us together. Here are 12 photos that show just that.
