Sadness...

Yesterdays happenings here in Norway have touched our whole Nation, the whole Europe, the whole World!
Words can not describe what's going through my mind...
I'm shocked, I'm angry, I'm scared...
But most of all, I feel sadness - deep sadness!
I feel for the young people that lost their lifes, I feel for the ones that experienced such a nightmare, I feel for the parents, family and friends that's lost someone they love, I feel for all the people that's been touched by this in any way!


I light three candles tonight;
One for Faith, one for Hope and one for Love - may all three remain in all our hearts and thoughts during this difficult time!
Take care of your selves and each other!
