A story about how an entire island got revenge on two guys harassing a girl with downs syndrome.
So this is a story about what happend last summer on an island by the swedish west coast. It is a very popular destination for rich swedes and norweigans during summer, and is packed with bars and fancy resturants. Although, the people working there all know eachother well.
There is a very popular bar on this island, who has a regular with downs syndrome. She is there 2-3 times a week, always happy and loved by all. She has been on the island every summer for years, so all the staff and people living there knows her.
Last year, during the monday of the busiest week of the year (packed with rich, loud people with big boats) two norweigan guys in their 40s started harassing and making fun of the regular with downs. The staff saw what happend, and threw them out. But the girl was in tears, and everyone was mad. The owner of the place quickly sent one of the staff to take pictures of the two men. He then sent them to every owner of a resturant, bar, nightclub and shop on the island and explained what had happend.
The following week, the two guys could not buy a beer or food on the entire islanď, and had to go by boat for 30 minutes to do so. I still get the chills when i hear this story.
It’s all about perspective, you can’t see when you’re standing too close. – Last day on the Swedish west coast before I’m going back to the city to record & finish my new book. Centered, inspired and grateful ♡🌿 🌎
