if someone has a fucking phobia of something don’t be an asshole and play with their fear for your own amusement
In remembrance of the victims of the 2011 Norway attacks.
22nd of July 2011 a loner with strong nazi beliefs single handedly killed 77 people from all over Norway. First as he planted a car bomb in front of the Government House in Oslo, and then in a second attack at a summer camp on the island of Utøya. The camp was organized by the youth division of the Norwegian Labour Party. Dressed in a homemade police uniform he accessed the island, chased and executed 69 people, mostly teenagers. More were seriously injured. The stories of the survivors are horrific and heartbreaking beyond belief. A quarter of Norway’s population knew a victim affected by the attacks. To Norway this was and still is the worst national trauma since WWII. Let us never underestimate the power of hate or keep quiet in the face of it, but remember and preserve that overwhelming love, engagement and unity that grew so strong in the aftermath of this tragedy. It’s the only way to conquer hate, and the only way to make sense of this senseless act.
