Solidarity

I’ve seen several reports now that over 200,000 people came to the city center to mourn last Friday’s tragedy, which is an overwhelming number, even if you don’t know that the population of the capital is only half a million. More stunning photographs of the rose-carrying people, prime minister, and Crown Prince. Apparently, the whole city is sold out of roses.

If you’ve wondering why I don’t write the city/country name, it’s because I don’t want my blog to be easily found by co-workers doing a search on traveling there. I don’t write anything that folks at work can’t read, but I generally prefer to keep the sphere separate. Thus, Scandinavia, the part with the red flag with blue and white cross.

That's an amazing, and heartbreaking, photo.
