Standing together with the people of Norway

First of all, at this sad moment in Norway and world history, I want to say I am standing together with the people of Norway.

From CBC News “Norway island camp massacre claims 80 – Bomb attack in downtown Oslo kills 7“, (emphasis added)

“Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg, whose office is in the building that was bombed, said Norway will show the world that its democracy will only get stronger.

You will not destroy us. You will not destroy our democracy and our ideals for a better world,” he said.

“We are a small nation and a proud nation. No one will bomb us to silence. No one will shoot us to silence. No one will ever scare us from being Norway. This evening and this night, we will take care of each other, comfort each other, talk to each other, and stand together.

We must never stop standing up for our values.

Stoltenberg said Norway’s answer to violence is more democracy, “but not more naiveté.”
