Extra security measures on the Amstel river tonight too, at the annual liberation day concert. The people living around the area of the concert are forbidden to open their windows, be on balconies etc. as they used to do. A pity for them as it is probably the best spot if you want to see the concert.

I find that strange, the man was obviously not part of a group but a loner who went nuts. For the people who enjoyed listening to the concert it is a great pity, I would really feel annoyed if I was one of them.

This reaction of the officials regarding security does point to a major change for Koninginnedag next year.

TRH The Prince of Orange and Princess Maxima visited the site in Apeldoorn today,
and visited the families of four of the victims today as well..
They looked at the flowers placed there and people were impressed and pleasantly surprised to see them there.

It is unmistakingly a Royal sign that they will not have themselves nor any celebration curtailed due to one loone nut,
and they are among us,with us.Especially on the day we celebrate our Freedom.

(Haven't seen our flag yet here today allthough it is a flagflying day,inspite and because of everything)

Or that is soo true Empress Merel.Nowhere,only here.

Even though..we have a penchant for naming many a nice thing in life " typical dutch " this most certainly is.
Wouldn't wish,or even contemplate,to swap with any of the other RF's out there.It goes to show again there is nonesuch as ours!

And it's not only the RF whom we always support or give back-up. It goes for everything. Best example is ofcourse football.

With Queensday, 4 and 5 may, sports etc we Dutch are just one. Doesn't matter where you're from or where you stand for; nobody is left out.

I certainly am proud to be Dutch and the fact we have such an amazing RF. Wouldn't trade it for the world.

Piere van Vollenhoven attended the Liberation Day celebrations in Wageningen,the town that was the venue of the surrender by the Germans on may 5th 1945.

Perhaps it is just my mood, but I think never before the tex of "We'll meet again" fit so perfect. Especially this lines:

We'll meet again,
Don't know where,
Don't know when
But I know we'll meet again some sunny day
Keep smiling through,
Just like you always do
Till the blue skies drive the dark clouds far away

Thanks for posting that video, anirac! The NOS news interviewed several people in the public, many of which said they especially came for queen Beatrix. Nice such a show of support, esp. in 'republican' Amsterdam.

I am glad that the security measures didn't prevent people with boats attening the concert, it is a nice sight.
