Today was the fourth day in a row we have seen these pictures on TV. The fourth time the trumpet play the Last Post. And we, as a country, and I guess so am I, have brought to and end a week of grief. On Time magazine (Time article on Dutch mourning) there is an interesting article about the differences between Americans and the Dutch. If you’ve got the time to read it, I can recommend this article.

  2. It is so important to grieve. And to give mourn the chance. And all these ceremonies, whatever one thinks about them, is an important means to mourn.
    The picture you have here so much like the picture we saw in Sweden in 1994 when 501 Swedes died in the Estonia disaster, more share of these from minlilla city, or 552 years 2004 Tsunami disaster. It helped the country come together and it was ok to cry, feel bad and so on.

    We could not at least do something against nature. But behind this is only the hunger for power and political games and stupidity.
    On all sides.

  3. I don't even have the words to express how this article makes me feel. I think that I belong in a country that isn't quick to fight but one that is neutral. Holland is a great place and it is horrible that such a tragedy has happened there. My heart goes out to all the families and friends of the passengers that were on the plane. Thanks for sharing
