In a few days it’s been four years since a right-wing terrorist bombed Oslo (killing 8 people) and killed 69 people (most of them teenagers or in their early twenties) on Utøya.. Today a major Norwegian newspaper wrote a short story about a memorial for those who died (In Norwegian: Link), and I started crying.. I don’t think I’ll ever be able to not cry or feel sick when I read about what this guy did.
I usually think like Barney Stinson; “When I get sad I stop being sad and be awesome instead.”.. but sometimes it’s OK to be sad.
Norwegian singer Maria Mena did a cover of the song Mitt lille land (My small country) by Ole Paus shortly after the attack. The lyrics are in Norwegian so you won’t understand them I guess.. but I just have to share this with someone..
I promise I’ll be back to the normal Laird in a few hours though.
