Norway's horror is our horror, too
Violence against children is pure evil.
Today, Norwegian authorities announced the construction of a website to post the photographs of all the 87 people Anders Behring Breivik killed. A friend of a few of the murdered teenagers described them as: "tolerant, accepting, embracing, and intelligent."
It was, authorities say, the largest number of people massacred by one individual in modern history.
The island in Norway where Breivik slaughtered the children looked like scores of Gulf islands on Canada's west coast. Breivik told police this morning he was surprised he wasn't stopped on the way to the island.
They were children at summer camp. Children like ours.
And soon we'll see their faces.
As we look into their eyes, let's ask ourselves what we can do to end hatred and violence now.
