When the Nordic World Stood Still

29 Jul 2011 – Aftermath


Mon 25 July 1200n: when the Nordic World stood still in respect to the victims of Fri 22 Jul bombings and shootings. Was in town at the OSL University where the Norwegian Royal family, King Harald, Queen Sonja, Crown Prince Haakon, Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg/the Labour leader, survivors of the shootings and many others like myself were there to pay our respects with one minute of silence. The survivors of the youth camp were there to show and sign the condolences book.

Meanwhile, Anders Behring Breivik, the suspect will be interrogated for a second time today, Oslo Police Chief Johan Fredriksen said

Gratitudes to the Hustads for their company and for having me stay the night at their house on this grey and sombre day. Decided to take up Stenseths’ invitation to spend a few days at their hytta┬áin Ringebu somewhere up in the Norwegian mountains. Never can tell what tomorrow will bring and being with family and good friends is the top of the list.

For Norwegians still in shock from Friday’s horrific attacks, there is a sense they have woken up in a country that has ‘lost its innocence’ – CNN
