Norway – the terrible limitations of words
What can be said about these terrible attacks that has not already been said and will not be said again a hundred thousand times for years and years to come? Evil – vile – vicious – despicable – unforgivable – horrifying – hateful – shocking…whole dictionaries and thesauruses worth of deserved obloquy and odium.
Moments like this reveal the terrible limitations of words, and the Berserker darkness that lurks in all kinds of unexpected places.
No political or religious viewpoint could ever, ever justify such atrocious acts.
