Today was supposed to be such a happy day for many in the Netherlands who were celebrating Koninginnedag (Queens day), who gathered in the town of Apeldoorn to await the royal families arrival. What started out as a great celebration ended ubruptly when a speeding car went into the crowd and killed 4 people. There were also 13 people injured, some of them seriously.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families and all those who were affected by this senseless act, and of course to all the Dutch people whose celebrations were cut short or cancelled. Our celebration here in Miami will still go on but I'm sure the mood will be totally different after this tragic news.
