Remembrance day 4 may!

Today it is Remembrance Day in Holland. We remember all the ones how has died in the second world war and the wars after that. It is to discus now for howlong we have to do this. But I think we have to this for enougther many many years. I think we can´t stop doing this. I'm always very emotional when I look to the memorial in the church and at the Dam in Amsterdam. Sometimes I have to cry. I dont know why but it is so touching to see the old man and woman and hear the stories and look to the images from the second world war.
I feel myself proud when I hear the anthem and see the old man who has fought for the freedom of my and mine country.

Today there is a lot of hate in the world.
I love the Jewish people and I think there is a wonderfull plan for them. But in the world is a lot of hate specially to the Jewisch. When I looked this evening to the memorial service in the church and heard stories and songs ..my heart jumpt up and was really touch when I heard this song in Jewish.

She sang Psalm 51.
Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God, the God of my salvation. My tongue shall sing aloud of your righteousness. Lord, open my lips. My mouth shall declare your praise. Do well in your good pleasure to Zion. Build the walls of Jerusalem.

It was so beautiful that I want to share this with you. Normaly I dont do this to share something what is so personal. But now when weve been silent 2 minutes for peace and memorial I dont want to be silent about this not today!

And for this day: The anthem of Holland

Tomorrow is liberation day!! I hope we all have a great day!
