In mourning with Norway


I am sure that many must share my feeling of helplessness in the face of the terrible events that happened yesterday in Norway: at least 7 dead from the bomb blast in Oslo, and 84 (now 85) killed on the tiny island of Utoeya. It is so difficult to know how to respond, other than to express sympathy with my Norwegian friends.  I simply place this flag here as a sign of respect – and of hope, that all of their friendship, openness, love, and commitment to making the world we live in a better place may continue to flourish in the years ahead. As the Norwegian Prime Minister said on TV last night “The answer to violence is more democracy, more humanity, but not more naivety”.
