These are the words of Norway's Prime Minister in the wake of the tragic bombing and shootings that occured there. I was deeply moved.
"In a call for more openness and more democracy, I have a message to the person who attacked us: You're not going to destroy us. You're not destroying our democracy and our work for a better world. We're a small country but a very proud country. No one can bomb us to be quiet. No one can shoot us to be quiet. No one can ever scare us from being Norway"
- Norwegian Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg
Love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair. So let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic. And we’ll change the world.
