Stine Renate Håheim, survivor of the massacre at Ulvøya that tore away 70 somewhat of her friends didn´t know it at the time. Her wise words would come to stand as groundpilars in the very essence of how Norway chose to meet - and will continue to meet terror in the future. Her well spoken words gave meaning and guidance in a time where norwegians searched for answers, and suddenly it was clear to us all. Fight terror with love. Hold hands. Hug. Show love. Not only by parading in the streets with flowers- color the city with flowers of the world -as a symbol of how much we all oppose the hate brought upon us.
Never ever let terror and fear win.
Hate can´t win if we love.
On the 25th of July 2011 over a hundred thousand people decorated the streets of Oslo with love. On the 25th of July 2011 I was truly proud to be norwegian.
