A minute's silence...

Norway  held a minute's silence yesterday at 12.00 noon for the slain victims of the terrorist attacks on Friday. 

Henrik, our Norwegian exchange student had three friends who were attending the youth camp, and if he hadn't been in Australia, he and his girlfriend would have also been there. 

Thankfully, all of his friends and family are safe and unhurt by the tragedy. 

12.00 noon Norwegian time was 8.00 pm in Queensland, so we lit three candles & had our own minutes' silence. 

There are times I truly don't understand mankind, and this is another example of it.

  1. I agree. Some people are capable of things that I would never have imagined.
    Have you ditched that cold yet?
