Queen Sonja & King Harald of Norway 10th Anniv Massacre Oslo Cath Annika Byrde NTB

Queen Sonja and King Harald of Norway attended a memorial service at Oslo Cathedral on the tenth anniversary of the mass murder of 77 people, mostly teenagers, by a right-wing extremist in 2011. 22 July is shorthand for the massacre just like 9/11 is for Americans. Speakers urged mourners to keep working to eradicate extremist violence. King Harald said, “We must acknowledge that we as a society have not done nearly enough to see, to help, to carry the burden together, and to counteract the dark forces. I am sorry about this.” (Annika Byrde/NTB via AP)
