Voksenåsen

Filed under: Main — Mackanlee @ 9:04 am

Last summer and the summer before that Valeria and I held artworkshops at Voksenåsen in Oslo in Norway. It is a hotel that has summer workshops every year for Norwegian and Swedish kids. Many of the kids who attend these workshops at Voksenåsen have parents who have immigrant backgrounds. Some of them had just recently arrived from countries like Rwanda and Congo.These summer workshops are filled with fun activites and they have been very rewarding for me to teach. The kids where super creative and inspiring to work with. Therefore the massacre at the Norwegian summercamp last week by a racist maniac becomes extra horrible. To think that someone could be so sick that he would kill kids disgusts me. This should be a wake up call for people to take a clear stand against all preachers of hate.

The devils right hand

Another thing about the insane killings in Norway, why do people have such easy access to automatic weapons and guns in general? Several of these shooters of innocents have been members of shooting clubs and have been serious weapon fetischists.It needs to become harder if not impossible to access the kind of weaponry that this guy was using when he went on his deranged killing spree. Johnny Cash played a great song about a gun where he calls it “The devils right hand”:

My thoughts and prayers go out to the victims and the survivors of the massacre that took place in Norway this friday. What happend there was a tragedy of enormous proportions and now we must continue on with love in our hearts. Because as Martin Luther King Jr. said : “Hatred paralyzes life; love releases it. Hatred confuses life; love harmonizes it. Hatred darkens life; love illuminates it.”
