Yesterday I was sad to wake up to the news that there was a terrorist attack in Sweden. Another truck attack.

While we mourn for the lives lost, let us continue to live our everyday lives not in fear, but in love of one another.

The Prime Minister of Sweden released this statement yesterday:

Today we have suffered a horrific attack in the heart of our capital. At 14.53 a truck ploughed down Drottninggatan in Stockholm and into Åhléns department store. We know that four people have died. Many more are injured. An entire country is united, in mourning, anger and resolve.

Firstly, to those of you who today are mourning a loss or are worried about someone who is injured, I want you to know that Sweden is by your side.

Today if you are in Sweden, you will see flags hung at half mass.

I don’t have much more to say about something so terrible. May we continue to love Sweden and each other in spite of one person’s terrible actions.
