Friday 7 of April 2017, will forever be a day marked with sorrow, dispair and rage – the day when Stockholm and Sweden was hit by the senceless violence.
Violence we have been horrified by from afar, but so far been spared. At the heart of our beautiful and vibrant city, an act of terror was executed, killing four people and many more were wounded.
But this is also the day when the Stockholmers, the Swedes and all our friends showed the deepest solidarity and compassion. It does hurt, and it will hurt for a long time, but Stockholm stands strong.
Stockholm is a city of heroes. We grieve, we move on and we will not be broken. Stockholm is and will always remain an open city.
