Woolwich attack: murdered soldier Drummer Lee Rigby 'would do anything for anybody’
Drummer Lee Rigby was a loving father who only ever wanted to be a soldier and “live life and enjoy himself”, his family said.
The 25-year-old soldier, from Crumpsall, Manchester, was walking towards the Royal Artillery Barracks in Woolwich, south-east London, on Wednesday when he was run down by a car and murdered by two terrorists.
A moving tribute from his family described how he was always there to protect his loved ones and played the “big brother” role to his sisters.

8. These two fucks actually believed that butchering a man on the street would win others...
...to their cause? They set their cause back 50 years with their actions.
Yes, I totally GET why they did it.. But, if they REALLY wanted to get their message out, they would take to the pen, instead of the cleaver.

14. It is. Guy Garvey wrote it for a friend of theirs who died young...
...and I still can't listen to it without tearing up. BTW, if you haven't heard of Elbow, you may have heard them as PBS/WLIW Create was using a song of theirs as their promo. It may seem out of place here, but since they're big Manchester lads and Lee was a drummer, I think he might like it...in fact, this may not be the best recording of the song, but it was recorded in Manchester Cathedral.
