“You will not destroy us. You will not destroy our democracy nor our quest for a better world. We are a small nation, but we are a proud nation … the answer to violence is even more democracy, even more humanity, but never naïveté. That is what we owe to the victims and to the those they hold dear.”—
Norwegian Prime Minister, Jens Stoltenberg
The situation in Norway is devastating. There really is nothing else I can say at the moment, I’m just watching with horror as the events unfold. I did want to take a moment and say what an enormous amount of respect I have for Norway’s PM and his speechwriter, because this was a dignified, wonderful speech.
