An emotional day by okvalle

An emotional day

It was an emotional day today. Driving some secondary school children to Utøya, the place where a Norwegian terrorist (I don't want to mention his name) on July 22nd 2011 killed 66 people, and injured 69 people, mostly youngsters. This happened after he had set off a bomb by the government buildings in Oslo, killing 7 and about 200 were injured.
This ferry (MS Thorbjørn) was bringing him over to the island you see in the background.

It's a very dark memory, and I remember it as if it was yesterday.

May they all rest in peace ❤️
I remember it well as the Tall Ships were in Shetland at the time with many Norwegian ships here.

Even though I am in the UK, I remember too.

I am glad that you've chosen not to mention his name. Must be a exceptionally difficult time for all.

Ja noget vi aldrig glemmer 🥲🥲

I recall that incredulous horrific day. I still can't get over the fact that someone would actually think of such a heinous act, let alone actually carry it out.

Interesting to see the ferry that carried him over.
I hope he's still in prison - I believe his minimum term was 10 years.
