This is not book related but I need to write a few words about the horrible tragedy that happened here in Norway yesterday, July 22nd.
The government center was bombed yesterday, eight people was killed and more injured. After that a man traveled to a little island called Utoya where a summer camp(this is a regular yearly event) was held for the Labor Party youth, over 600 young adults was gathered out there. The young people there was from 13-14 years old and upwards. The man was dressed as a police officer and said he was there to inform about the bomb in Oslo. There he started shooting, at least 68 young adults was killed. So far the investigations has reveled that it is most likely the same man that is behind both incidents.
It feels so unreal that something like this could happen in little Norway. I feel sick in my stomach and the tears are never far away. I'm so grateful that none of my loved ones was anywhere close to these horrible incidents but an acquaintance of ours had a child that was shot several times, the situation is critical. Norway is a small country so I believe almost everyone will know of someone who has been affected by these gruesome events.
Norway is in mourning today. My heart and thoughts goes to everyone that has lost a loved one in this tragedy and all the people that has been affected by this tragedy.
