Firstly: Thanks for the flow of sympathy, solidarity and warm regards that has come to the office and to each of us during the last days. We in the board and staff of Norwegian PEN are all safe and sound, but Norway is such a small country – many of us know someone who is touched by the events.
These are strange times, times for grief, sorrow, but also for friendship and solidarity. It might sound strange, but Norway appears to be a warmer country than it was a week ago. We know that we have you beside us in these days. Again, to each and every one of you:
Anders, Carl Morten and the rest of Norwegian PEN
