I think I'm both. News keeps calling this an accident. I wish they would call it what it was..... An attack. A senseless "see what we can do" attack, costing the lives of people that had done nothing, except book a flight.
I am sad, when I see the list of people. Whole families, wiped out.... for what? To prove a point?
My brother in law lost 2 colegues, my nieces boyfriend lost a fellow student, there are 2 families in one street who planned a vacation together.
Wednesday, when I saw the ceremony at Eindhoven Airport, I got chills, and I felt proud because it showed the country I love, is still the way it was when I left, even though it doesn't show on a daily basis. The care taken with the caskets, the protection from media intrusion of the family members.... and than, at the very end, the long line of hurst, traveling on a deserted freeway, with people along side the road, cars pulling over in the oncoming travel lanes to pay their respect. That's when it hit home, that there would be at least 160 more hurst following them....... and tomorrow, the last 38 will make the trip. According to the news, there may be more victims, but for now.... tomorrow will be the last flight in for a while. I hope identification will bring a little closure the the families and my thoughts are with everybody who lost loved ones. Don't forget to hug yours?
