I want my blog to be a happy place, with the focus on various bits of crafting. Today I make an exception.

Today is the 22nd July, and I’m Norwegian. I’m from Oslo and have lived there most of my life. On this date, a year ago, something terrible, the unimaginable, struck our safe little country, and my city.

Today is a day for remembrance. The victims were many; they will not be forgotten. The scars run deep and will take long to heal. Yet, I have never seen so much love. It makes me proud.

The photos are from last summer.
