Under the Abaddon anomaly in Hamburg last weekend I was assaulted and robbed. I lost everything (passport, money, visa, mobile) and had a temporary amnesia, and when I finally arrived at the airport I was exhausted, wet and cold. I went to the airport office and all the employees was amazing. I got food, towels, soap and a hot shower, and they lent me a telephone and a computer so I could contact family and the insurance company.
After several hours at the airport office and the police I fell a sleep on a chair. I woke up when I heard my name and Ingress on the speaker and went back to the airport office. One of the employee told med an organization called Ingress and that a man from Enlightened Hamburg was on his way to the airport to pick me up. I can't describe how relieved I was to hear those words. A short while after agent @LipovitanD picked me up and drove me home to his and agent @Silbermilch apartment where I stayed until the next day. The next day she went with me all the way to the airport where both blue and green agents from Norway waited for me. Back in Norway me and my car got transported all the way home to my apartment.
The solidarity and care the agents from both faction is unbelievable, but this isn't the end of the story. The Enlightened started crowdfunding for me and I got money and a new phone. I've couldn't be more thankful and happy.
Even with a incident like this I will still go out and play, attend anomalies and other events. I had a great time before this happened and I met a lot of fun and great people in both factions.
And please stay together and look after each other <3
I would like to thank all of you who helped me and still supports me from the bottom of my heart, and a special thanks to agents:

We deceive ourselves when we think that the surface on which we live is somehow solid. Whilst the mountains of California are getting closer to the satellites that survey them, the soil of the valleys beneath them, where most of our fruits and vegetables are grown, is irreversibly and rapidly subsiding, all as a result of the ongoing drought.
As Californians continue pumping groundwater in response to the historic drought, the California Department of Water Resources today released a new NASA report showing land in the San Joaquin Valley is sinking faster than ever before, nearly 2 inches (5 centimeters) per month in some locations.

Our planet Earth is the only planet in the Solar System that possesses Plate Tectonics. The Earth's surface is in a constant state of change; the tectonic plates together with the oceans and continents continuously slide along one another, collide or sink into the Earth's mantle. However, it still remains unclear how Plate Tectonics started on Earth.

I get it, I truly do: these are trying times, frightening times for many of you right now. Every day, you see tremendous violence all over the world on the media, some of which targets people you identify with, people who seem to hold the same values and beliefs you do. You see the order of society around you changing in ways you never thought imaginable; change that feels like the end of humanity and civilization as you know it, an embrace of ideas and mores that feels like a march straight into hell.
I know these feelings because my own family went through something like this, not too long ago. Thessaloniki and Athens were home to a large part of my father’s family for several centuries. In the early 40’s, invading forces gutted these cities, destroying their resources and infrastructure. Citizens of these polities were threatened with murder when their religious values prompted them to shelter their neighbors -- neighbors who were being enslaved and murdered outright because of their religious beliefs. Cultural values of piety, charity and compassion were replaced by order of the invaders with nationalism, elitism and separatism. Cities that had been models of industry, the strength and light of not only a nation, but in times past, an entire continent, became brutalized wastelands where ancient grave markers and the stones of houses of worship were torn up to pave the streets.
A rule of law was established that separated the citizens of the entire nation into classes, classes determined not by the acts or lawfulness of the citizens, but by the foreign prejudices of their country’s usurpers. Some of the people so divided were held as citizens to a government not of their making, unable to leave or dissent. Some were imprisoned, accused of crimes that never before existed in their lifetimes. Some were disposed of, by death through forced labor and starvation, or simple slaughter.
All of this ghastly destruction of human life and history, this unholy desecration of human spirit and liberty came, ultimately, from a single man’s idea of the world -- and he sounded very much like this. This is not the world you want to live in, this is not a world that values what you value. This is the world born of unreasoning fear, that strikes at every shadow because its fear of the dark is stronger than its ability to see the light. This is the world where power and dominion masquerade as faith because the heart and its mysteries are mistaken for weakness, and the fearful are more afraid of being weak than faithless. This is the world that embraces method over reason, favoring correctness over kindness because the fettered intellect need never examine the difference between what is just and what is fair.
You do not belong in this world. Nor do I. The stranger at the gate does not belong in this world. No one belongs in this world, not even the lost souls who think this world could finally make them safe from their fears. We knew this world once, and it engulfed our planet in a war that changed us forever, and when it was done, we said Never Again. Never Again.
