OPINION: Their lives matter too.

Follow us on social media!

We will never forget that fateful spring day in Sweden. An 11 year old girl was walking on her way home from school in central Stockholm when disaster struck.

A man named Rakhmat Akilov, a rejected asylum seeker from Uzbekistan, had hijacked a truck which he then used as a deadly weapon. Mowing down pedestrians while he thundered down the busy pedestrian shopping street in Stockholm.

One of his victims was the young girl Ebba Åkerlund. There is something that I to this day cannot get out of my mind. Horrible photos showing body parts of the young girl scattered all over the shopping street were spread on social media.

I have walked on that very shopping street many times. It is gruesome to think of the horrible death that poor Ebba met that day. She didn’t deserve it. She had her whole life ahead of her, yet it was brutally taken away by an evil terrorist.

Unlike what we see now, there was never any massive protests for her. Her life matter too!

But there’s more disturbing things that happened to her even after her death. Her grave has been vandalized many times for about 1 years time. Her dad said it happened as much as 3-4 times per week.

The man caught vandalizing Ebba’s grave.

Ebba’s dad tells of how he personally has guarded his daughters grave for more than 100 hours. The vandal was finally caught, but only sentenced to 2 months prison. How is that justice for Ebba? Where are the protests?

Then there is 17 year old Wilma Andersson. She was a Swedish girl who also had her whole life ahead of her.

She was brutally murdered and beheaded by her boyfriend after she dumped him. In a grim discovery, her decapitated head was found wrapped in aluminum foil in a suitcase.

Her boyfriend has been charged with murdering the girl. Tishko Ahmed Shabaz is originally from Iraq and became a Swedish citizen in 2014.

A prison guard witnessed how Tishko had told him how Wilma “got what she deserved” and added “that little f***** wh***”.

We reported on this story on Times of Sweden not long ago. But again, where are all the protests for this young girl that was brutally murdered? She did not deserve this.

Her life matters too!

What about 7 year old Emily Jones from Britain. She was just riding her scooter in the park when she was randomly attacked by a stranger who stabbed her in the neck.

A 30 year old woman who sat on a bench attacked the young girl as she was riding past her. Just like Ebba Åkerlund and Wilma Andersson, this girl had her whole life ahead of her.

Emily had done nothing wrong. She was simply playing in the park. But her life was brutally taken away. Again. Where are all the protests?

Her life matters too!
