REMAINS RETURNED TO HOLLAND TODAY FROM DOWNED AIR MALASIA FLIGHT

The people of Holland today served the rest of the civilized world – anyone devastated by the capricious and entirely unnecessary deaths of 298 people.

The dignity and ceremony and reverence shown to those recovered bodies was comforting beyond description. In a time of daily international casualties, watching each hearse….and each throng that lined the route, all reminding us that such tragedy is neither normal nor acceptable. And that witness must be borne.
