Perfectly said Marg.

Those scenes and pictures are just heartbreaking. That one shot from the air and all you can see is that line of hearses...That had me sobbing. I'm sure I'm not the only Canadian here who on seeing the images of all those people on the overpasses had flashbacks to The Highway of Heroes days. Just so very, very sad.

I would hope a representation or someone from our Embassy/Consulate is/has been there for the Ceremonies at the Base, as there was a Canadian on that plane.

At least they're now being treated w/the Dignity and Respect they deserved from the moment this vile act happened.

This makes me weep, I seeing this makes me so angry at the world for not doing something regarding Putin, the Dutch people have suffered so much in the past and now this...I pray that there is some type of peace will come to the people, I felt this angry when events in my country similar to this (murder of innocents) happened. I sincerely hope world leaders have the strength and courage to go after those responsible regardless of who they are or what the economic reasonings are.

I must say that I much admire the Dutch for their restraint when the news was first announced. They have handled this tragedy with such patience and dignity.

I hope our Australian team is working well with the Dutch and that together they can bring all the bodies home to their loving relatives and friends.

God bless all those going through the immense pain this terrible incident is causing.

The NY Post is reporting that one of Putin's daughters is living in the Netherlands. The Post can be a questionable source.
Is this true? Does anyone know?

Yes she lives/lived in Voorschoten which is in the province of Zuid-Holland. It's close to Leiden. Rumor has it that she and her Dutch husband have fled.

The evnt is shown live on the first public channel: NPO 1 - Live tv

All names and ages of the victims were read by relatives/friends and were projected in screens surrounding the audience.This was followed by the national anthem.

It was a most dignified ceremony. Especially the King was grief stricken, I must say, as if he felt the sadness of the nation on his shoulders.


The King, Queen Máxima, Princess Beatrix, Princess Margriet and her husband Professor Mr Pieter van Vollenhoven were at the National Remembrance for the victims of Flight MH17 which went down above Ukraine. 283 passengers and staff died in the crash, amongst them 193 Dutch citizens.
