    It is a sad moment in my country's history. The innocence is gone. So far we've been an open country. We could mingle with the King and Politicians. No barriers. I just took my friends to see Oslo, the other day, we stopped for a veiw to take in the beauty of Tyrifjorden ( where the island is where he shot dead 84 young kids).
    How could this young nice looking man become a heinous killer? A member of the the Freemasons…. I guess religion and politics is not a good combination for some people, it can show the worst in Christians as well. When a person nurish on hate, it has to go wrong, wether it be a Christian or a Muslim or other beliefs. We need to teach tolerance, live tolerance and be tolerant. Hate is no way, it only leads to destruction.

    My prayers are with the country, peop;le and families of Oslo. No one should have to experience such tragedy, or heartbreak.
    My heart goes out to all of you! God Bless you all.
