I must make a correction to today’s blogpost. It was the Dutch Foreign Minister who gave the speech I referred to. He was therefore not the leader of a country but a representative, of the Netherlands. Nevertheless it was still a heartfelt speech and a reminder of humanity and sanity and respect to the actual victims of the shot-down aircraft, the people on board, all of whom are now dead.
We would all do well to remember that people are more important than power, and who’s “right” and who’s “wrong”. It’s all in the perspective anyway. It’s all a point of view.
