Nationale Rouwdag

Today is the official mourning day in the Netherlands for those lost on the MH17 flight. At 4PM there was a moment of silence (stores had up signs letting customers know). Even the church bells in town were still.

Four in the afternoon was the designated time because that is the arrival time for the first flight bringing  home those who were lost. This evening at 8PM there will be a vigil march in Dam Square.

My heart goes out to those who lost loved ones.
