  • For everything you hate in yourself - forgive yourself.
    For all you are ashamed of.
    For all you are proud of.
    For everything you want to hide.
    For everything you want to show.
    For everything that did not turn as it should.
    For everything you are.
    For everything you want to be.
    Forgive yourself.

    First chapter of A Comedian Growing Up by Jonas Gardell.

    To all of you who are in pain.
    To all of you who are lonely.
    To all of you who lost someone.
    To all of you who miss your home, a home.

    This is for you.

    Let 2012 be the year that will give you the strength to live on and do great deeds.

    We need you.
