WATCH: Impromptu Song Shows Manchester's Resilience

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G9FLyA7OSjs A Manchester crowd's impromptu rendition of "Don't Look Back in Anger," by hometown band Oasis, emerged as an uplifting emblem of resilience after Monday's deadly bombing there. The spontaneous singing followed a national minute of silence to honor the 22 people killed as they left a concert at Manchester Arena. It started with a lone voice. The Guardian says 32-year-old Lydia Bernsmeier-Rullow began to sing the band's 1996 hit. Soon others joined in and the song swept through the crowd in St. Ann's Square. "It really touched my heart. It gave me shivers, it really did, to hear everyone joining in with me," Bernsmeier-Rullow said, as you can see in a video posted by the Guardian . "Don't look back in anger, that's what this is about," she added. "We have to look forwards to the future. We're all going to join together. We're all going to get on with it because that's what Manchester does." The video has been widely shared on social media, the

Iraqi Refugee Empowers Youth To Share Their Stories With 'Narratio'

When Ahmed Badr was 8 years old, his family's home in Baghdad was bombed in the midst of the Iraq War. The family was uninjured. They moved to Syria, which was peaceful then, and in 2008, they came to the U.S. as refugees. Writing helps Badr deal with what he's been through, and he wants to give other young people the same outlet. Now a student at Wesleyan University, Badr founded the website Narratio to empower others to tell their stories. Badr used writing to figure out what it meant to be an Iraqi-American kid. His life had dramatically changed since coming to the U.S. — in Baghdad, his parents were civil engineers; in the U.S., they worked minimum wage jobs at Home Depot and Wal-Mart. Overtime, Badr realized that writing on his personal blog helped other people understand who he was and where he came from. "There was this feeling of empowerment that was just overnight, all of sudden people were interested in my story," Badr says. "... And so with that in mind, two years passed,

After Brief Deployment, Brazilian Troops Recalled From Streets Of Capital

Within 24 hours of their deployment in Brasilia, Brazilian troops left the streets of the capital on Thursday — gone from their positions guarding government buildings almost as quickly as they'd manned them. The decision, in both cases, came down from President Michel Temer. The embattled politician ordered the military deployed to help quell the massive protests against his tenure Wednesday — protests that turned violent as demonstrators clashed with riot police and smashed the windows of some public buildings. By the end of the day, roughly 50 people had been injured and one building set aflame, according to Reuters . Less than a week ago, Temer had delivered a defiant televised speech , saying he had no plans to step down even as the country's supreme court opened a bribery investigation against him. Successor to an impeached president and polling in the single digits himself, Temer has been on tenuous political footing since virtually the day he stepped into office. But he has

From Paris With Love: A Kansas City Musician Gets Distance And Perspective

Singer and multi-instrumentalist Krystle Warren has been compared to artists like Tracy Chapman and Nina Simone . The latter comparison is particularly intriguing: Not only does Warren share that icon's talent for evocative storytelling, but she also lives in France, as Simone once did. It's a long way from her native Kansas City, Mo., which Warren left in her early 20s to pursue her music career. On her forthcoming album Three The Hard Way , Warren pays tribute to her roots. Warren tells NPR's Audie Cornish that she has been feeling the pull of home more than ever. "When I'm home — and when I say home, [I mean] in the States, but specifically Kansas City — there's a part of me that's just invigorated, and feels very much a part of everyone and everything there. And then at some point there's the other half of me that really pulls to be back in France." Hear their full conversation at the audio link, and read on for highlights. Interview Highlights On her song "Red Clay," about the
