Call for one minute silence’s New Year’s Eve

Norwegian church leaders urge people to observe one minute silence’s at the beginning of the new year to commemorate those who lost their lives in the tsunami disaster.

«I hope there will be silence, so that the starry sky will be our sky during the first minute of the new year, instead of man-made stars,» said Arnfinn Løyning, leader of Norges kristne råd, according to the Norwegian newspaper Bergens Tidende.

Church leaders refer to the fact that people from all continents have been affected by the catastrophe and said the New Year’s celebration also have room for reflection.

With a little reflection and absence of fireworks, church leaders state that the seriousness of the situation will be addressed. They also urged that people donate money instead of buying fireworks this year.

Norwegian financier Kjell Inge Røkke informed that he has decided to cancel his traditional firework show this year to pay his respect to the victims of the devastating disaster in South East Asia.
