Remembering Norway today

I am trying to avoid over reading the stories on the maniac in Oslo. My prayers go with the family members and friends of the victims of that unrestrained evil. I play games where players often combat evil, yet real evil is a far more frightening thing and reading about a remorseless killer shakes one's faith in the fundamental goodness of humanity.

  1. It was a terrible, senseless thing. I am emotionally exhausted, but immensely proud of my nation. We will be changed by this, but not towards hate and intolerance.

  2. Been praying for you Harald and all the citizens of Norway remember all the families and friends at the Masses I offered.

  3. I'm not Norwegian, but this has been a big bummer for me. It only reinforces my lack of faith in humanity's fundamental goodness.

    One of the news clips mentioned that the attacks were a violent protest against Muslim immigrants, but all the photos I've seen of the survivors are decidedly white and non-Muslim looking. Am I missing something, or is this psycho a moron too?

    My faith is the human race has actually been strengthened by all this.
