Terror attacks in Norway

Friday, July 22nd, 2011

I was planning to post a happy TGIF Song of the Day, but obviously none of that after today’s terror attacks in Oslo and Utøya.

At least seven people died and many got injured after a bomb explosion in the government area in the city center, and at least ten young people were killed at a shooting attack on a political youth camp…TERRIBLE!!

I was at work when I heard (and felt) a huge BOOOOMMMM around 15:20h…thought initially that it was thunder striking close by although it seemed too loud…who would have thought it would be as bad as it turns out to be…updates still come in every minute (check,, or, the latest news tells us that the shooter on the Utøya island is Norwegian and can also linked to the car bomb in the city center, CRAZY!!

…this ain’t Norway, it all feels so unreal…

The Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg just said: “No one will bomb us to silence. No one wil shoot us to silence. No one will ever scare us away from being Norway”.

My heart and love goes out to the family and friends of the victims and we are burning a candle for the victims.
