It will cost blood, sweat and tears

“It will cost blood, sweat and tears”, Churchill said on a Speech.

I saw this WWII photography on Instagram, and I was thinking about a lyric by Leonard Cohen who died last week: “First we take Manhattan, the we take Berlin”.

And it will cost fighting against evil, such as bullying, xenophopia, wall-builders and looking for trouble

                            Amatrice

Today I devoted myself to creating a drawing dedicerad  the victims after the earthquake in Italy, but also the approximately 300 works of art that were destroyed.

On the artsajt Hyperallergic I read that Amatrice was worst affected by the earthquake among approximately 70 affected cities and communities in the area.

.IN DN. KP. Junior, great earthquake in Italy, I read that houses today are built to withstand quakes on 6.2 according to the Richter scale, as that hit Italy.

           Secure the Houses and Arts

Swedens Prime minister Stefan Löfven said that he wants to send emergency aid. I’m going to email the Prime Minister and suggest that we are helping Italy to “secure” the old houses and buildings and art treasures.

Many lives, and many priceless art treasures could be saved.

Or what do you say?

                      The Mass Murder In Nice

I wook up yesterday morning with the News about the mass murder in Nice. It sounded terribly, but no words can describe the terror, made by an islamistic nazi (My description).

         ……… my #Niceattack cartoon 

I read about the famous satirical cartoonist Jean “Plantu” Plantureux that had made a Cartoon with a weeping bird.

That made me inspired to make a similar cartoon. 

Un bel hommage; A “Nice” tribute.

Missing Children 

& Late this evening we heard a helikopter flying around near our home, close to the Skelleftea(å) river in northern Sweden.

My wife lookedi n the local News “Norran” after is something had happened, while I was filming the helicopter with my Smartphone.

“There are kids missing in the river”, she shouted.

We just have had a festival in this weekend in our town.

Now it feels sad, very sad, and my wife said that it is one Child.

Our thought and prayers goes to the parents and relatives.
