Ocean of flowers: 200.000 people joined the flower-parade in memory for the victims of the terror in Norway.

First part of the poem sung by the crowds
poem by Norwegian poet Nordahl Grieg

War is contempt for life,
Peace is creation
Death’s march is halted
By determination

We all deserve the world,
Harvest and seed
Hunger and poverty
Are born of greed

Don’t turn your face away
From needs of others
Reach out a helping hand
To all your brothers

Here is our solemn vow,
From land to land
We will protect our world
From tyrants’ hand

Defend the beautiful,
Gentle and innocent
Like any mother would
Care for her infant.
