HONOR AND DIGNITY

IN THE FACE

OF EVIL AND HORROR

TERROR IN NORWAY JULY 22, 2011


July 22, 2011.  It is a day nobody in Norway will ever forget.   Almost 100 Norwegians were killed in an attack by a political extremist of the radical right.   A huge car bomb exploded in the center of Norway's government district in Oslo.  Later the criminal who did this carried out the deliberate murder of members of a major Norwegian youth group.

Yet, out this terrible evil would come a response that should  inspire the world.  Norway's people and government did not respond with panic and hate.   They remained true to their values.  We could say more but we feel that  the  Norwegian Prime Minister and his people have spoken far more eloquently than we could ever hope to.  This is why we presented this material:


 Here is a key part of Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg's speech about this tragedy.

"We are a small country, but a proud people.

We are still shocked by what has happened, but we will never give up our values.

Our response is more democracy, more openness, and more humanity. But never naivety.

No one has said it better than the Labour Youth League girl who was interviewed by CNN:
“If one man can create that much hate, you can only imagine how much love we as a togetherness can create.”
