Today a post about our Queensday 2009. This post I tribute to all the people who were involded in this tragedy:
In remembrance of the people who died and got injured last Queensdag 30-04-2009.
The 2009 attack on the Dutch Royal Family occurred in Apeldoorn, the Netherlands, where a man drove his car at high speed into a parade which included Queen Beatrix, Prince Willem-Alexander and other members of the Dutch royal family; the attack happened on April 30, the Dutch national holiday of Koninginnedag (Queen's Day). The vehicle drove through people lining the street watching the parade, leaving eight dead and ten injured. It narrowly missed the royal family and crashed into a monument at the side of the road. No members of the royal family were harmed. This attack was the first attack on the Dutch royal family in modern times.
In Apeldoorn there was a memorial about the dramatic events. It took place yesterday. Queen Beatrix and Mayor Fred de Graaf unveiled a memorial commemorating for the victims around 16.20 hours. Then there was a moment of silence and then the people who were present laid white roses at the monument.
The metal box with granite lids is situated under an oak tree opposite the needle. The box contains some glass balloons. Seven white balloons were changed color. They symbolize the seven victims who died in the attack. Some other balloons have retained their color. There is no balloon for the person which was responsible for this tragedy.
My thoughts are with all the people who lost a dear one in this tragedy. My special thoughts are also for the parents and family of the person who caused this all. They lost their son which is as bad for them as it was for all the other relatives of all the victims who lost their lives because of him. My thoughts are also at those people who were badly injured because of this attack. They had to suffer a great deal. The Royal Family has my thoughts too, they were very dazed by all this.
I wish everybody, which were involded in any way, a great deal of strenght especially today. Memory's from last year will make this day very hard for all of you.
My deepest sympathy for you all. This candle is for you all
