In memory…

Flags around the Netherlands are at half mast today in memory of the victims of the crash of MH17 in Ukraine, 173 of whom are reckoned to be Dutch citizens.

This is a flight I’ve taken more than once in the past, so seeing it come up in the news like this was somehow extra shocking. The reasons behind this accident aren’t clear yet, there will no doubt be multiple investigations. But today I’m thinking of all the families, friends and colleagues of those who died.
