YSL and memories of a sad, sad day
Amelia, Add my YSL and heart felt condolences as well. Best regards dear friend. -Art
A beautiful picture after such a sad day. Very best wishes, Rosa.
Good morning dear Nick, thank you for the Y*. It was a joyous and very exciting festival of Tall Ships in many ways, but many visitors also visited the Cathedral, and flowers were laid at the front as well as placed in the City Lake. The Norwegians are still shocked unsurprisingly. I hope that the tragedy does not lead to deep and bitter divisions between the 'right' and the 'left'.
Thank you dear Art. As with any event like this, the sad memories will remain for many years to come, and the families of the young people shot in Utøya will never forget. I feel so sorry for them.
Warm wishes from the land of your ancestors, Amelia
Good morning dear Rosa, and thank you. Since the tragedy in Oslo and Utøya, any Norwegian flag that is hoisted for whatever reason seems to be flying at half mast.
Warm wishes from Norway, Amelia
Dear Jac & Willy, thank you. Indeed the Tall Ships' festival was somewhat subdued, but the Norwegians are a strong and resilient sea-faring nation. Many tragedies have occurred in the past.
However, let us hope that extreme politics do not cause a repeat of the events in July of 2011. Such a sad state of affairs.
We were in Canada when we heard of the attack in Norway. Never expected that such a thing could happen in Norway. If it can happen there, it could happen everywhere.
It came as a shock to the nation Norrel. First the bomb blast in Oslo, followed by the senseless shooting of youngsters on the island of Utøya. It was such a sad day.
Amelia hay gente que no sabe vivir en paz y solo tiene odio dentro de si debemos rogar por que cada dia todos querramos vivir en paz y sin odio por el projimo.
It was a sad time for everyone Amelia, regardless of creed or religion. The hearts of the UK went out to all of you.
Good morning Cesar, July 22 2011 was a sad day for Norway, and a shock for the nation. I do not understand what goes on in the minds of such people who think that they have the right to do such things!
Hello KC, many thanks for expressing your thoughts here. I was in the UK at the time, Adrian was in Norway, but the bomb in Oslo and the indiscriminate cold blooded shooting on the island sent shock waves throughout this peaceful nation.
I am sad for your terrible losses, Amelia. Thank you for thinking of us at this time and sharing this lovely photo.
Thank you Nawitka. I am not Norwegian, but we have lived here for almost 4 years, so I have a great love for this peaceful country. I think many folks worldwide were stunned, as the Norwegian nation was, at the premeditated killings in Oslo and especially Utøya.
Hello Peter and thank you for your visit and understanding. It was a sad time for the people of Norway, but nevertheless the celebration of The Tall Ships Race in Stavanger went ahead. The flags at half mast made the few days somewhat poignant.
