How I describe an encounter with life, death, overwhelming love and horrifying sorrow, all in the highest potency at one and the same time?," she writes in the featured article.

'It is hard to find out when the right time to get back on the work is, and it is very individual, when he is ready. But, for me, is it right to come back now. It is just as quiet started crawling in me to get started again. And the last weeks I have started to prepare for the important task it is to create a more active and participative Denmark,' she wrote on Facebook.
