I am out in Chicago and was shocked to learn yesterday about the horrendous attacks that took place in Norway. My thoughts are of course with the families and friends of the victims.
These attacks also serve as a reminder that a free, open and democratic society cannot be taken for granted but needs to be defended every day, over and over again.
So many young social democrats have lost their lives on Utøya island. We owe it to their memories to defend the values they stood for even stronger.
