This is different from a flood, or a tornado. This is different from a hurricane or an earthquake. In the aftermath of the horror of the bombing in Oslo, Norway, and in the many murders on Utoya Island, Norway, we want to help. Americans are decent people, at heart. Norway hasn't harmed anyone and we hate to see harm come to Norway. But how can we help? The police there have the situation well in hand, they don't need our help there. This isn't a problem you can throw money at. U.S. troops can't help either. You have a nation full of hurt, sad people. People who have been wronged.
All we can do is open our hearts.
If you are a person who attends church, your church probably has a prayer list. Add the people of Norway to it. Put the flag of Norway on your Facebook page for a while. Put a candle in your window. Send a nice note to their ambassador in Washington, DC. Keep a good thought for these people. You remember how the Oklahoma City bombing felt, don't you? My heart goes out to them.
