I can’t sleep and I have to wake up in a few hours :(
Two military planes carrying bodies of MH17 crash victims arrive at Eindhoven Airport in the Netherlands
When they carried the first coffin of a victim out of the plane, you could hear cries coming from their loved ones. That broke my heart. It is so real now.
Last week they were packing their bags, excited to go to the other side of the world, for a holiday or a conference, to start a new life or to visit family or to go home. Now we see coffins, knowing these people are in there.
Why did this happen?
Just for one minute, not addressing you as representatives of your countries, but as husbands and wives, fathers and mothers, just imagine that you first get the news that your husband was killed and then within two or three days you see images of some thug removing the wedding band from their hands. Just imagine that this could be your spouse.
To my dying day, I will not understand that it took so much time for the rescue workers to be allowed to do their difficult jobs, and that human remains should be used in a political game. If someone here, around the table, talks about a political game, this is the political game that has been played with human remains, and it is despicable. I hope the world will not have to witness this again any time in the future.
Images of children’s toys being tossed around, luggage being opened, and passports including passports of children being shown on television — they are turning our grief and mourning into anger of the whole nation." — Minister Frans Timmermans from the Netherlands on flight MH17 (via frisso—n)
Today is the national mourning day for the Dutch victims of MH17. The first 50 bodies will arrive in the Netherlands this afternoon around 4pm. The minute before the plane with the victim’s bodies lands the entire country will have a minute of silence. In Amsterdam there will be a silent procession, where the participators are asked to wear white. There will be no commercials and appropriate broadcasts on radio and television.
We lost 193 Dutch citizens this past Thursday. Many families have been ripped apart. Everybody in the Netherlands, directly or indirectly, seems to have known someone on this plane. We are a small country. We are not used to this kind of terror, this generation of Dutchmen is not used to this kind of terror. I have no idea what this brings for the future, but just for today is does not matter yet. Today we remember. Today we think about all those lives lost on that plane. About all those families and friends who lost their loved ones in a useless plain crash.
Think about those people today. And think about the people you love who are still there. Appreciate them, be aware.
Tim and Regis; I will think about you most today. My old colleague and the brother of my friend. It is just not fair. Slaap zacht, mannen.
Today is a National Day of Mourning in the Netherlands for the plane crash victims
I hope Tumblr is with us today.
This tragedy has much impact on almost everyone here. Almost everyone knows someone who lost someone. Many people, even whole families, will never come home.
With so many young people on board of flight mh17 it is very possible that we also lost people that were part of the Tumblr community.
At 4 pm in the Netherlands (3 pm in the UK and 9 am EST) there will be one minute of silence. Think about all the people who lost their life in a war they are not even part of. Think about the people who have lost loved ones, many people lost more than one family member or friend.

Had an awesome day at the beach today. The weather was perfect and the water was so nice. I wish I brought my surfboard though, the waves weren’t perfect, but good enough for a beginner like me. Unfortunately it’s such a hassle to take my 2.3 meter surfboard on the train amd tram, especially on a sunny day when lots of people go to the beach.
Clouds are weird yo.

Hey, If you needed someone to proof-read your letter before you send it just let me know, I’d be happy to help!
Thanks! I will see how it goes! Not sure yet if they have to be in English, but if they want that, I will definitely keep your offer in mind!
why would you not
I was looking for job vacancies and I found 4! That’s more than I found in the last 3 months, so yay.
Also means I have to write 4 letter which I absolutely hate and and I think 2 have to be in English which is hard ok.
French supermarket chain Intermarche launched this promotional campaign to help reduce food waste from “undesirable” fruits and vegetables. Rather than throw out ugly, deformed, or damaged produce, Intermarche instead sells them with a unique twist.
Someone posted this on the facebook page of a Dutch supermarket chain. It would be perfect for students or other people who don’t have a lot of money to spend and have no problems with vegetables and fruit that does not look perfect.
I would defenitely buy this if they bring this concept to the Netherlands.
I would love to tell you what you can find on my blog, but I don't even know that myself.
