"the Next day gapes Martin's bench empty in the classroom and at the vanishing cabinet is a woman and a man and crying. Our nature clears his throat and says:"
"– this is Martin's parents, and they have something important to tell you."
"the Mother is holding up a letter. Her hands are shaking. The tears flow down on paper and I'm terrified of what she'll say."
"– Martin did not come home last night. Instead we found this letter to you, says the mother with a voice that barely carries, and read on: ”You in the class has always hated me. You think I'm disgusting. You don't want to be with me...”"
"the Words on Martin's time in class 8B is rolled up. Breaks of solitude. How much each little hello meant. I mentioned that one of the that ever turned him from nobody to somebody."
"So will the words that change everything:"
"”But when to and with Frida said that it was I who had broken the machine in the woodwork, then I can't take more. So now I jump from the älvsborg bridge, so you won't have me.”"
"I get no air. I have taken the life of my classmate."
"I Think. But at the älvsborg bridge change Martin when he sees the black waters far below. He decides to run away, but the caller later their parents and tells me where he is."

"When I for a couple of years ago, met Payman at a digitaliseringskonferens, I asked representatives of the national agency for education on the spot, why we do not create the same solution for all schools in Sweden? It was not, was the answer. All develop or procure their own solution. Expensive and idiotic."
"we cannot afford to wait. So digitaliseringsminister Anders Ygeman minister of education, Anna Ekström: Can you please, introduce now?"
"at the same time, we must continue to give priority to the vital call, as so many educators and students already have about our most important values in classrooms around our country. Conversations about compassion, respect and communication. Call to take an active choice and include."
