Stockholm In My Thoughts





Stockholm, my beautiful hometown, you and your people are in my thoughts. I am sorry for the lives lost, for those injured, for their relatives and friends who lost so much.

Still, the people of Sweden will not blame all Muslims for one evil deed. The people of Sweden will not close their hearts and their arms to those in need. The people of Sweden will not let terror ruin their lives. Of that I am sure.  


I wish I could be there.

  2. Oh Inger - oh yes ... what a wonderful post - just terrible what one person can do to a great many innocent people - desperately unfair. In darkness, Let there be Light ... I do wish you could be there with your people - and so understand that wish. My thoughts to Stockholm and Sweden at this time ... and to you - with a peaceful blessed hug - Hilary

  6. Well said Inger, our hearts go out to everyone who was affected by this tragedy, our prayers for those lost and those hurt, this is all becoming too frequent and as you said the people of Sweden along with everyone else cannot allow terror to ruin our lives.

  7. No one seems safe any longer, when militant groups target the most innocent, civilians, being too cowardly to fight the military offensives directly. Our sympathies go with those attacked, as some churches were the targets of suicide bombers in Egypt today. When will it be confronted? We ignore these attacks at our peril. Our sympathies go with these people who happen to be in the place targeted, but sympathy doesn't replace those who are killed. I like your thoughts on how the Swedish people deal with such events: as one person said, they are a peaceful people, so why attack them? That may be precisely why. I first thought of you, Inger when I read the news.

  8. What a dreadful deed to attack such a peaceful country. I love that you do not let hatred for a whole group of people via the acts of one man color your thinking. Wish more could be as understanding.

    1. The only way I would go to Sweden would be if I didn't have the dogs and could spend the entire summer at my friends' summer place, with a few trips to Stockholm. No more three-weeks trips for me, I think I'm too old for that.
