    Just now we hear that there were shooting in another part of norway. Norways Prime Minister, Jens Stoltenberg, is from the party ARBEIDERPARTIET. The young members of ARBEIDERPARTIET were at Utøya, Buskerud having a Summercamp. This is where the shooting happened(is happening). Earlier today Norways former (and first female) prime minister, Gro Harlem Brundtland, (who were also from the party ARBEIDERPARTIET) were at this summercamp earlier today. It is also a rumor that Jens Stoltenberg were at Utøya earlier today, but left just before the shooting happened. A man dressed as a police man got to the Island when he said he was there for a rutine-check-up after the bomb in Oslo. When he got to the island he then pulled a gun and started shooting around him. It is not confirmed if he was alone or if there were several police-dressed men. Rumor has it that 4 people were dead, and at least 5 people were shot. Youth are now swimming away from the island, trying to get away.It seems as the attack is for ARBEIDERPARTIET or the prime minister. The people are now terrified, myself included.

    This is a horrible, tragic, and hateful act aimed at these people. This world is in a dismal state if people are walking around disguised as normal only to attack and forever alter other peoples lives like this. I am so sorry for what happened to you guys and I don’t believe there is enough justice that can be delivered to trump the fear and dispair that has been bought upon you. Like so many other countries fighting with terror, it becomes so real when it happens in places that we least expect. Something has got to change but no one wants to do anything that may threaten their popularity. The innocent suffer while the officials drink coffee and discuss what or who gets the money this time. Unless of course one of their loved ones are harmed-then they’d become commando and quit throwing money at people who don’t care about money. GIve the money to the victims who may not be able to return to work right away after burying a child, a parent, or a spouse. Or to the ones who are too scared to leave the house. Oh but those are just a small portion of the population… we see them as long as you feel they are relevant.
