A Day of National Mourning

It’s a bit odd, on one of the warmest days of the year a chill goes through a nation. The last time we had a Day of National Mourning was 52 years ago, just after the death of the Mother of the Fatherland, the late Queen Wilhelmina († 1962).

You’ve all seen the news and the impact on our small country is enormous, one way or the other we all know some of the 193 deceased, out of 18 million!

Here’s a small impression. In the coming days more remains will be flown in, they all get the same treatment as what we saw today. A long line of hearses will travel over closed off highways towards the barracks in Hilversum.
