An open letter to the world from an American in Sweden: We won’t back down… from love

8 Oct 2017 culture + art

When America is at its best, our bond + our spirit… it’s unbreakable. – Jason Aldean It’s hard to be an American in Sweden in times of tragedy. Honestly, it’s just freaking been hard to be an American in Sweden since last year’s election. I can’t be there to fight for what’s right… as beliefs, laws, and ideals of regular Americans are being stripped away and threatened by injustice. And, I can’t deal with all of the Europeans’ questions toRead More
