Which as a beautiful day began, ended in a dreadful drama, which shocked us deeply. Humans, who stood near to the place or at home by the television, saw what happened, all are shaken and speechless. We are speechless that somewhat so terrible could happen. My family, I, but I think also all in the country, feel from whole heart with the victims, with their families and friends and with all, which were deeply met by this misfortune.

  1. Mit meiner Mutter habe ich mich noch gestern unterhalten, ob Beatrix am Königinnentag das Zepter weitergibt. Da wußten wir beide noch nicht, was da geschehen ist. :-(

    Ich verstehe sowas nicht, zumal es so ein nettes und menschliches Königshaus ist. :-(
