Day 177, in this Journal
"This too will end, and a new beginning will come"

9/11 a day of sorrow and sadness in many ways. First we all can in one degree or another relate to what happened in the USA. But for us Swedes this date relates to that our Foreign Minister Anna Lindh was assassinated and died on this date 2003.

I saw Anna Lindh the day before walking down Drottningatan in Stockholm just minutes before she was assassinated. She was walking with some friends but had no bodyguard. And that I thought was strange, and when I was on the bus on my way home I listened to the radio and there was news that Anna Lind was hurt and brought to the hospital.

The news during the evening was sketchy and the only thing that came out was that she was treated and that there would be a conference in the morning with the PM. Where the PM just confirmed our worst suspicions. Anna Lindh suffered severe damages and had died. You can read more about Anna Lindh here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anna_Lindh

Besides that remember that, the Covid-19 crises isn't over yet so......

Be safe, keep your distances and wash your hands and take care of each other and your lil selves!
