A beautiful world

I cannot stop thinking about the explosions in Brussels this morning and the people killed. The hatred expressed there today led one of my colleagues to say that the world is no longer a beautiful place.

But it still is. It is still as messy and horrifying and awful as it has always been, and it will continue to be as beautiful.

I read a story this morning in Dagens Nyheter about how 1,000 local volunteers worked over 9,000 hours at a temporary housing for asylum seekers here in Sweden kept it open and functioning. (http://www.dn.se/sthlm/den-har-resan-har-forandrat-mitt-liv/)

I have to keep reminding myself of the good to counteract the bad.
