After the awful shooting in Norway, an act of terrorism of the most heinous nature, my mother received this note from her cousin Bjorg:
"Dear all of you.
Thanks for your thoughts about our suffering. Yes we are very sad all the norwegian people, it is a trgedi we hardly believe, it is such a little country every one has" links" to someone. But in all our sorrow, we have "turned the bullets to roses, and the hate to love".As one girl sad " If one man can show so much hate , how much love are we all able to show.The people have been bringing thousend of roses in the streets..It has been a symbol of love taking place insted of hate. I am so proved beeing norwegian in thees day. It is a strange feeling.
About relatives we had cosines and their children from mammy and dad, Knut og Bodil,last weekend. 22, even if it turned to be a very sad day, we had a very good time together. We were about 70 people, from 2 yers til 79,( Knut) Everyone in good health."
I love my people.
