We woke up this morning and heard that more than 80 young people had been found dead on the island. More people missing both there and at the government building in central Oslo.
Our thought goes to all those who have lost their loved ones, either family or friends!

Many things have been closed, concerts, sports activities and other events.
Programs on TV are news, and a few children programs.
We are a small country, and we will will manage, but it will take some time I guess.

Thank you everyone, for your kind comments!

It is hard to realise that this has happened. Every time I check the news there's another story to read about concerning this horrible act of terror.

Lois Evensen said...

It's impossible to comprehend why the deaths of so many people are needed for someone to be heard. We all know that concept is the product of a sick mind.

Dianne said...

Your country and the world are in shock - so very sad - in a moment of time life has changed for so many families. Tragic!

Paulo Rafael said...

I am in shocking, very tragic.

It's really tough and dramatic what happened. I still do not understand what has happened.
From here I want to express my condolences to all families and all Norwegians in general.

Kate said...

All civilized people cannot fully comprehend the kind of mind that is capable of creating this kind of havoc. The world's citizens are holding your nation close to our hearts right now. The healing will take a long, long time.

I am really sorry for all these sad news.

These events are terrible, Gunn. Many others share Norway's pain and sadness.

Julie said...

Not sure what to say here, Gunn. That it is more likely a degranged national makes it harder to bear, I think. Difficult days ahead for all of you.

I feel so sad about this tragedy. Can't get it out of my mind all day long. How to cope with this. Wish you all the best.

So sorry Gunn, for the people of Norway and people everywhere that have lost someone precious through mindless acts of violence.

Jacob said...

Just can't imagine such a travesty. Sometimes it seems insanity is growing everywhere! Our thoughts are with all the people of Norway!

Kitty said...

I cannot believe this. Everyone thinks of Norway as such a peaceful country and people.

I hope the dust settles very soon and your country can start to heal. I'm sure these days are very stressful and terrible.

Leif Hagen said...

Anne and I were horrified by this terrible news! We think of Norway having lost so many young, precious, intelligent future leaders and world citizens! Just think, we were with you in Oslo almost exactly one year ago in Vigeland Park!

We have been seeing much news about this here in Japan as well. So many unneccessary lost lives...it's very hard to watch. My payers go out to you and your country during this time. Much love.

Even if almost one month is passed it's impossible to understand why happened all this
