Living history is what we all now have in common,

a test of patience, democracy and the human spirit.

With every sneeze, every cough a possible butterfly effect,

with every new so-called restriction a loss of personal freedom.

A gamble national heroes of every country fought to avoid,

fear over caution the tool of conditioning.

Despite being chastised by an obstinate world that was so quick to throw away personal savings, personal freedoms, personal truth,

the wise people of Sweden took it all in stride,

those who judged from their place of ignorance eventually having no¬† choice but to adopt Sweden’s proven method of success.

Feeling no need to glout, to relish, to utter ‘I told you so’, only one simple expression represents their perseverance in truth.

And so Sweden Smiles.
