Last Monday it was planned to arrange a memorial march or procession in Oslo. People were asked to bring a rose and come to the Town Hall square (between the town hall and the harbour) in order to start the procession there. More than 100 000 (some say it was close to 200 000) people came, so it was decided that it was impossible to bring all those people through the streets in a procession. In stead there was held a ceremony there in front of the Town Hall. It was transferred on the TV, and it was a very moving and dignified happening. The crown prince, the prime minister and others gave speeches, focusing not on hate and revenge, but on love and taking care of each other. Here is a video:http://www.vgtv.no/#!id=42472
After the speeches and the songs were finished, people walked away in quiet grief, spontaneously leaving their flowers creating flower decorations all over the centre of Oslo:http://www.vgtv.no/#!id=42479
Also, just after the news were known, some people left flowers, candles, greetings and small flags at the door of the Oslo Domkirke (the central church in Oslo). More and more people left flowers there, and the police had to close the street outside the church for cars, until there now is a veritable ocean of flowers spreading across the street and far into the market place:http://www.vgtv.no/#!id=42486
I think these pictures say more than words about the general feelings in Norway just now.
