Of absolutely undesirable reasons, our thoughts go these days to our friends and colleagues in FO (the Norwegian member organisation). Hoping that all FO colleagues are unharmed. Hoping that the social workers, who are to help in the current crisis phase, which many Norwegian families so brutally are thrown into, are able to provide a solid professional performance.Brutal acts committed by a mad extremist challenge our thoughts and life values. Solidarity for and with our closest friends, neighbors and colleagues feel, however, only strengthened many fold. As many others have expressed it yesterday and today, what has happened can only reinforce the belief that solidarity and democracy are the answers to a peaceful coexistence of humanity locally, regionally and globally.
