The parents of a Cheshire school girl who was injured in the Manchester Arena terror attack are bringing their online blog posts to an end.
Since Freya Lewis was hospitalised in May, her family have been keeping all those at her school, Holmes Chapel Comprehensive, up to date on her progress.
Freya is now back in school and getting on with life but is still attending hospital appointments.
The final post highlights how out of adversity, something positive can be found:
“The Manchester Arena Attack represented the very darkest side of humanity, but over the past seven months it has given us the opportunity to witness the very best it has to offer. The world is full of some very special people, and they have been there when we most needed them.”
Sadly, one of Freya’s school mates, Nell Jones, was one of those killed in the blast.
The last post says the blog has been a beneficial therapy for them, and that their thoughts have been with Nell’s family over the Christmas period:
“Christmas is a time of reflection, and our thoughts turn to the family of friend Nell and the families of others who were killed in the MEN Arena attack. We can not begin to comprehend how they cope with their loss and it really brings it so firmly home to us just how lucky we are to still have Freya. When we have difficult weeks, it’s easy to lose sight of this, but we are acutely aware that fate could have dealt us an entirely different hand.”
