I’m sure by now, most of you have heard about the horrific news coming out of Oslo and are just as saddened or disgusted by it as most people. Even if you’ve never been, the thought of something like this happening anywhere is heart breaking. I just wanted to send my condolences to the people of Norway. Though I know that little can be said to change the reality of things.

When I visited Norway for my first time last fall, I immediately fell in love with it. Of all the cities I’ve been to in Scandinavia, Oslo was the one I was looking forward to visiting again the most. I admire so much about the culture, the architecture, and the natural landscapes—not to mention the pockets of exceptional coffee. One reason I was so eager to move to Gothenburg, is how close it is to Norway. I’ll be back in a few weeks and I’m looking forward to visiting a country that won’t let terrorism define who it is.

Stay strong Norway. We love you.

    I can’t believe this happened in Norway out of all places. This is the greatest massacre Norway has experienced since World War II. I can’t think of a worse place for this to happen. My heart goes out to the Norwegian people.

    Oh no, what’s happening in Oslo?? I’ve always wanted to visit the country, but I haven’t heard any news coming out of there. What’s wrong?

      A Christian terrorist blew up a bomb in downtown Oslo and then massacred 70 teenagers at a camp on an island. All of this was done to protest multi-culturalism and Islamic immigration in the country.
