What can be said when a tragedy happens like what happened in Norway?  I have no words to describe the shock and horror I felt when I first read about it last night.  I will admit that the tears flow freely every time I read an article on the massacre – I simply cannot believe it!  The photos of the King and Queen of Norway sobbing at the memorial service are absolutely heartbreaking, as are the photos of those who survived – they will never be the same again.
