Burning a light

Norway are in shock after the horrible happening yesterday.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the families that suffer a terrible loss.


Saying for today:
Death leaves a heartache no one can heal,
love leaves a memory no one can steal.
~From a headstone in Ireland

Looks like we need to keep the candle burning as the casualty numbers go up. This really is a tragedy. Glad to hear your son and his girl friend were safe at Bislet.

Hey May Britt! So sad to see on the news the deaths in Norway. Blogging makes the world a smaller place and when we 'know' blogging friends in places affected by tragedy, it affects us too ... but it also means there are a lot of thoughts and prayers directed to your country right now from all around the world. Keep the candle burning. Bear Hugs! KRIS

There is no excuse for this type of behavior. In spite of evil people-- there are so many good people in the world. Your country will never be the same, just as the United States of America has never been the same after the tragedy in Oklahoma (by one of our own), the tragedy in San Diego, California at a McDonald's restaurant, the Columbine High School massacre, Virginia University, and so many more unjustified mass murders committed by Americans----lest we forget the 911 foreign terrorists.
So many of us grieve for your country and the victims. May peace be with you and your country.

Shooting unarmed children and setting bombs....heart breaking. How can we stop these madmen?

So sorry and sad for Norway's tragedy, and that he was inspired by a crazy American. Thank goodness the judge is not going to let him have any public voice, hopefully he will not inspire another event like this!

My prayers for the families affected.
