New Dutch Friends 4 May

New Dutch Friends 4 May

Until today, I never saw any reason for a king or queen. Today is Remembrance Day, when people recall the deaths and suffering of World War II and and Dutch people who died. I saw a very solemn ceremony in Dam, and the King and Queen were there and, along with several others, laid wreaths at the monument. A band played somber music, and thousands of people attended in serious silence. At 8, there was an official two minutes of silence throughout the country. When you have been invaded, occupied, and many people have been murdered or died of disease and starvation, the memory lasts a long time. A few survivors were there to place wreaths. The king and queen are widely loved and respected. Imagine that.
