I’m afraid that the time has come. I mean I told myself there was no way I could be so emotional about this, but boy was I so wrong.
Firstly I would like to take a moment to reflect on the tragic incident that happened a couple of weeks ago in Graz. In short, on the 20th June, a man raced through the streets of the inner city with his car and it resulted in deaths, countless injuries and shock for the entire city. Incidents like this can of course happen anywhere, but when things like this happen in such close proximity, somewhere where you would usually feel so safe, it really hits a nerve and there are so many ‘what ifs’ in all of our minds. Some people are still in hospital weeks on from the incident and the whole city is still shaken up. Walking through the centre for the first time after the incident was an emotional time for everyone, the candles, pictures and flowers took over the streets, but since the event the city has pulled together and shown nothing but strength and support for all the victims. Graz trägt Hoffnung ♥
