This is a non-book related post so if you don’t want to read this then just look past it.
So as you guys know, I live in Sweden. Here we always here about what’s going on in America. For instance, when I was in upper secondary school we watched the Columbine documentary with Michael Moore. And we talked about how something like that could never happen here. We’re Sweden, we’re a bunch of chickens basically.
So we kept hearing about these school shootings in America and every time I heard about one I got so upset because I couldn’t understand how someone could do something like that, I still can’t. Our thoughts went to “how long before this happens closer to home?”.
I’m writing this post because today it happened closer to home. In a town about 4 hours from where I live and only 20 minutes from where my mother lives. A man walked in to a school with a sword (so not a gun) and attacked people. Four people were injured and one person DIED. My initial reaction was that it was a joke because things like that don’t happen here, right? But they do. And I am devastated. I just don’t understand how, WHY, someone would do this to other people. I don’t care what this person’s reason my be. You don’t walk into as SCHOOL with a SWORD and KILL people. Just. NO.
I don’t really have anything else to say besides that my thoughts and prayers go out to the victims of this tragedy and their families ❤
