Two things my fellow Swedes hopefully haven’t missed today: It’s Mother’s Day, and it’s your last chance to vote in the EU election. The first of the two can be a joyous occasion, or a painful reminder. The second is your democratic duty, and not all people have that opportunity, so make the most of it and vote, preferably for something that isn’t evil and dripping of fascism. The duality of the day is showing itself by showering us with rain, and bathing us in sunshine too. Fitting.
