Yesterday was our Remembrance Day. Equally different, the silence was both deafening and very impressive. My flag was flying half-mast. As an exception to the flag instruction we were allowed to fly it half-mast all day instead as from 18.00.

Frans, that was unbelievably beautiful, and moving to
be 100% honest. Wow sir, totally captured the feeling
of the day there for everyone, and I think all of us around
the world actually. Can’t thank you enough.

Yes, it certainly was. Their own video is 16 minutes but that's too long to show here and I even took minutes of this one. It came a s total surpise so 99% of us missed it as it was not announced to prevent crowds of people coming to watch it live. it was done to thank all those in healthcare and other occupations who make double overtime and to just give us a good feeling on that day. One of our Ministers was so impressed that she proposed to do this every year and a really big one on New Year's Eve as a substitute for our National Fireworks Show that is hosted by Rotterdam.
