One day



July 22nd 2011. One day in history. 93 casualties. 96 injured. An unknown number of people missing. My little country.

Thank you for all the supportive mails and comments, it means a lot to me! My family was lucky; as far as we know no one we know was present at the bombing or the shooting. When they release the list of casualties, probably tomorrow, we’ll know for sure.

It’s all just too much to digest. The fact that someone can be putting such a horrible mark in our history makes my skin crawl. We are watching the news, morning, day and night. I am impressed by our authorities - our police, our prime minister, our government, the press; they have been dealing with everything in such a respectful manner; heartfelt but professional.

My heart goes out to all the victims and their loved ones.

I’ll be posting the winner of the giveaway later this week; I do hope you understand.

Take care!
