On the one year anniversary of the Manchester Arena bombing, Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford provided a message for the families of the victims, and his hometown. On May 22, 2017, 22 lives were lost and hundreds were injured when a terrorist detonated a bomb at the arena during an Ariana Grande concert.

On Tuesday morning, Rashford posted a message to his official Instagram account, which has approximately 4.6 million followers. It listed the names and ages of every victim, below the “worker bee” symbol that is synonymous with paying tribute to those who were lost in the bombing.

“My thoughts are with everyone who’s lives were lost or forever changed. Don’t let hate win. One love manchester.”

The Mancunian also posted the same message on his official verified Twitter account.
