"the Mother of mourning, memories, and Valle-the day in Nälden"
"the Teacher said that ”Valle is the only one who will become prime minister without having entered the primary school”."
"instead, 8-year-old hit by train and died on the way home from school."
"Now the celebrated Valle-the day once a year in jämtland Nälden."
"Actually, he was terrified of the train."
" He could come hemspringande and say, ”mom, today a man ran over when it plingade, it may not do”. He had very great respect for the train, tells mother Malin Johansson."
"Normally called Valle's mother, and then she took the dog and brought her son to school 500 metres from home. But on Monday 13 February 2017 was not like the other. Together with a friend would Valle go to the bathhouse. But first he would retrieve his swimming trunks at home."
"– He was in a hurry, just went. A snövall or a bom was probably just a hindrance at the time. I do not think that he reflected, ”if I go out here so I can get run over”."
"the Train from Sheffield 100 kilometres an hour through the Nälden. It roars through a curve that allows the driver impossible have time to slow down at the railroad crossing. The barriers were down, but Valle went over anyway."
" I was the third man at the scene of the accident, we live only 200 metres from the scene of the accident. When I arrived, I saw at once that the Valles life was over. Then it was the full chaos, with the police and ambulance, " says the mother, Malin."
" I was in my life's biggest shock, could not understand why no one talked with the driver. It was not his fault, it was the poor fellow who had to run on my child."
"”very kind, jättevild, knew everything about everyone”"
"Afterwards mourned throughout the village of Malin."
"– There were many hugs, tears and lit candles. People who I had never met stopped me, and told me things like, ”every day when Valle went to school, he looked by and said, ”hey, hey Mia."
"Valle was special for so many."
" He was very kind, jättevild, knew everything about everyone. He was a very social and fluffy lord, laughing mother, Malin. All thought of the Valle, and Valle loved all. He saw no errors and deficiencies, for him it was all equal."
" If he saw that someone was alone, so he was first on the scene, and saw to it that the loneliness disappeared. His teacher said ”he is the only one who will become prime minister without having entered the primary school”."
"the Valle were examined for adhd, and had a resource person in the classroom."
"– to Sit still and be quiet was not his thing. But he was really good at math and physics."
"the Same day as the train came put Valle at the kitchen table and said:"
" Mother, I can explain it here with x and y, it is not so difficult."
"– No, you know, not a Monday morning at 07.10. It is here we can talk about then, " replied the mother."
"Told me about the rings of Saturn"
"Other times he told us about the solar system, on the rings of Saturn, and novor."
"– That's not mother's genes, " says Malin and laughs. "
"– Sometimes I had to me that he had been transported here from another era, that he had once been a physicist. The equations were a mystery to me, for him it was just logical."
"Valles dad killed himself when his son was eight months. Dad's birthday was the same day as his son died."
"the Funeral was very light, very Valle."
" I always wanted to believe that my dad picked up his small treasure, as a birthday present. It has made me feel that even if I don't understand, so maybe there is some sense with it all anyway."
"Ten days after the accident was buried Valle in Näskotts church. The room was full, almost the whole school, even högstadieungdomarna, was on the spot. The priest turned to lågstadiebarnen and said:"
"– Take of the cap now if you want. For even if God says no, so would Valle have ignored it."
"People came from Norway to the funeral"
"There were people that Malin had never met:"
"– I opened the church for all. This had touched people, I got greetings, postcards and flowers from all over Sweden. One couple had travelled from Norway, they just felt they had to attend. It was not only a black day, but a very nice day with a lot of grief. The funeral was very light, very Valle."
"today is a photo of the Valle in the classroom in the school. Malin often get questions from children at the village of Valle – ”what is the name of his dog” (Ninja), ”why he went under the boom?”."
" It has been difficult for some of them. It is quite unfair when you are eight years old and forced to bury his friend, to not be able to continue playing."
"Since 2017 is arranged Valle-the day each year by All the IF, the first day after school was out in June. When will children and parents and plays football, participates in the springskytte, quiz competitions and orientation."
" It is absolutely in the Valles spirit, all have the same right to participate. No one had been prouder than he, if he had known."
