At the Norwegian Embassy in Washington, D.C., people are leaving flowers, candles and cards to mourn the lives that were lost in the bombing and shooting massacre in Oslo last Friday.
Celia Larsen is Norwegian she came with her two toddlers and white carnations.
"I heard that there were seven- and eight-year-olds working at Uttoya, collecting bottles," she says, weeping quietly. "And he killed them ... it's just sad.
"You don't have to be Norwegian to cry," says March Rich. "I feel so terrible for them, I feel so helpless it makes you think about good or evil whether ... there's any justice."
It's just one of many question being asked, but few answers offer any kind of solace, says Robert Fennimore whose daughter lives in Norway.
"We had quite a long chat about this and how horrible it is," he says. It's unbelievable, in Norway of all places. So I didn't know what to tell her and were certainly glad that she's okay."
A handwritten prayer addressed to the people of Norway reads: "May God bless those lost and offer you peace."
