We're Safe

To all of you who have heard about the horrible things that have been happening here in Norway today, we just wanted to let you know we're safe. First a bomb went off downtown Oslo, in a place I passed so many times either on my way to work or when we were going up to the lake or other places with the boys..
Soon after there were reports of a man, dressed as a policeman, shooting kids at a political summer camp..

7 confirmed dead from the bomb and 10 at the island so far... It is truly unbelievable and our thoughts and sympathy go out to everyone affected by the tragedy.

We appreciate your post to let us know you were okay -

As soon as I caught the news, I wondered -

Sadly, the toll has increased beyond something unfathomable -

As a country filled with our own right wing extremists that think their actions are 'right' you have our sympathies -

Thank you for letting us know. This is so enormously sad. Our Onkel Eric lives in Bergen so we have special love for Norway and all our Norwegian friends. Awful awful awful. We can't even imagine what goes on inside someone's head to do such a thing, especially to children.
