Re: [marshallsmicro8s] 40,000 people singing "Barn av regnbuen" at Youngstorget, Oslo - YouTube
- View SourceThanks for bringing this video to our attention, Mike. I've sent it out to facebook friends
and did a little more internet surfing on it. Turns out there were Norwegians singing
this song together all over the country not only in Oslo. It means a great deal to know
that people can respond to such a tragedy with such grace and dignity.
From time to time I find myself believing that there is indeed evil in the world.
I'm with Frank on the airfares. Stranger things have happened than drops in
airfare! Sticker shock from looking at fares from Montreal to Denver. I may
try to find a less expensive fare to somewhere further north in the US and
try to use frequent flyer miles for the remainder of the journey.
Peace, joy, friendship, hope and healing,

Later I get my RN degree, a Masters, and went into anesthesia.Have you been able to print out your travel documents on Holland America yet? We have notyet booked our air tickets, so don't have the return flight number. We'll do that soon, I guess.Frank keeps hoping air fares will drop.
