I’ve been thinking about how to make a thread about this without just saying bland stuff like “never forget” and what have you, and it’s kind of difficult for me to know how much and in what ways this has been, or is, discussed in other countries. Sometimes it feels like even other parts of my own country is so far removed from what happened that day, and I guess to some extent it is just so surreal that people who weren’t there and/or weren’t affected personally won’t ever really understand what it was like. I imagine it’s much the same with the London attacks and any other comparable situation.
Anyway, getting off track a little bit, but not too much: Because I’m struggling to find anything meaningful to say here but also really wanting to start a thread about this, I thought I would invite you all to ask any questions you may have about the terrorist attacks that took place ten years ago today, what has happened since, or anything else you’re confused about or want to know more about. I’m not an expert as such but it’ll be easier for me to access a lot of information on this, I’m sure, and I kind of already know what’s relevant and not. If anyone wants to share any interesting coverage from abroad (ie. not Norway), you’re also very welcome to do so, but please contextualise with a comment or question or something.
Note: I was not personally affected by the attacks, other than living in the city where the first part of the attack (bombing of government offices) took place. Can’t quite believe it’s been 10 years to be honest.
Here’s a quick run-through for those of you who are interested:
