Our hearts are bleeding

lysWe are lighting candles for those losing their loved ones in the Oslo terror bombing and Utøya youth camp massacre.

We have a been lucky in our family, all things considered, having had good news about 2 young boys we are connected to.
A friend of DD2 is reported missing after the shooting - we are hoping and praying for her rescue, and are keeping her family in our thoughts.
