Norway, a little peaceful country in north, stood by and felt sadness for the country and the people that had been personally affected by the terrible incident. Little did we know that about 10 years later something as terrible as 9/11 would happen in the peaceful country we live in. I am of course talking about 22th of July 2011. The biggest massacre in the history killed about 70 innocent children and young people based on their political opinions and their fight for democracy and equality. He also made a bomb which went of near the goverment buiding. This was an attack against the goverment and the norwegian policy. It is also likely that it was made as a distraction, so he could easerly finish his work at Utøya.
Grief is always different from person to person. In situations like these everyone has their own way of dealing with sorrow. The first thing we have seen people do after both of the accidents, its calling their families and sharing thoughts and feelings. We also see people in shock who doesn’t know what to think or to believe.
In both 9/11 and 22th of July it has been performed an attack on freedom. Both of the countries which were affected are determined to look forward to fight the values and rights that they stand for.
A difference that I see in the reactions after the two terrorist attacks is on the head of state. People can agree with me or not, but when I think of 9/11 I see towers in flames, people falling and I see revenge and war. When I think of 22th of July I think of democracy, love and unity.
George Bush showed anger against the terrorist and in a speech he said that they would get revenge against the terrible terrorist behind 9/11. Even though he felt with his country and just wanted what was best for everyone, I feel like it was more focus on the terrorist and revenge.
