FYI: Silent candlelight march Wed eve

As a tourist you might not pick this up from the local media and some may be interested in participating. The city has approved a request for a silent candlelight march in memory of the victims from MH17. Its starting point is Dam Square at 8 PM on Wednesday. From there the people will walk some route thru the center although at this moment the route is being finalized with the municipal authorities.

My thoughts are with all people who are grieving about a family member, a friend, a neighbour or just about all those victims of this terrible disaster.

May they rest in peace.

May all souls RIP. The ceremony was very touching @Eindhoven, the bells and then the silence across the country and the orderly convoy to Hilversum. Next two days - NOS says that same routine at 4pm will be followed for remaining victims.

Two weeks ago today I flew to Eindhoven - what joy.

Today, at Eindhoven - what sorrow.

I cannot express the sadness and complete horror I feel over the events of the past few days.

I'm about to light a candle here in Ireland and leave it to burn for a couple of hours (it's 7pm as opposed to 8pm there with you as you start your March) and will be with you all in Sprirt.

My heartfelt sympathies to the friends and families of those who lost their lives.

Just want to express my deepest condolence and sympathy to all who suffer from this tragedy. May all victims rest in peace in the other world.

We had completed a smooth and nice trip to Amsterdam and its surrounding cities in May, with much thanks to all experts' advices and info under this travel forum. What a lovely country and people we met ... so shocked and sad when we know this big tragedy.
