And now here’s something uplifting-ish to come out of the Norway massacre. Hege Dalen was having dinner with her wife Toril Hansen on the day of the massacre when they heard gun shots and screaming coming from Utöyan Island. Now some people I know (I’m not going to name names) would’ve hid under their car or run the opposite way when hearing gun shots, but not Hege and Toril. Along with many others, they got into their boat and drove across the water.
They picked up several young victims and drove them back across the lake to safety. Their boat couldn’t fit everyone at once, so they made 4 trips, dodging bullets each time. The Advocate says they saved around 40 kids. The day after the tragedy, Hege told a Finnish news site, “We did not sleep last night at all.”
And if that picture was taken the day of the massacre, then it looks like Toril did it all while wearing pajama pants. Bravo (I tried to Google translate “bravo” into Norwegian, but it only gave me “bravo” again. Lazy ass Google.) to these lesbian superheroes!
