July 22, 2011. A bomb went off downtown Oslo, killing eight people and injuring 209. A couple of hours later a man walked onto an island where a political summer camp was held for teenagers of Arbeiderpartiet, Norway’s largest political party. He opened fire, killed 69 people and injured 110. Nearly all those people were children. The attack shook Norwegians to the core, they came together in embrace and the term OsLove was born.
