Queens day in the Netherlands

Dutch police charged a man with trying to attack the royal family Thursday after he crashed a car near a bus carrying Queen Beatrix and her family, police said.

A victim is helped after the car crashed into the crowd in the Dutch town of Apeldoorn.

A victim is helped after the car crashed into the crowd in the Dutch town of Apeldoorn.

Four people were killed and 13 injured in the incident in the Dutch town of Apeldoorn, about 45 miles east of Amsterdam, police spokeswoman Esther Naber.

The driver is in hospital, badly injured, she said. It was not clear if he was one of the 13 injured.

The police are not releasing the name of the driver whose car careered toward a crowd of people who were watching the Dutch royal family riding past in an open-top bus.

The crash happened during celebrations for Queen’s Day, an annual holiday in the Netherlands.

Queen Beatrix was in the bus with her family when the black hatchback zoomed past. The crowds were behind barriers off the road, but security officials and journalists, including many cameramen, were in the road as the car went by.

Members of the royal family saw the crash and gasped, then quickly sat down as the bus continued driving.

The car crashed into the low metal railing around a column on the side of the road. The car appeared heavily damaged even before the crash, but the reason for that was unclear.

Queen’s Day is a national holiday in the Netherlands, the Netherlands Antilles, and Aruba. The tradition started in 1885 and celebrates the birthday of the queen.

    You like to make people think on some critic issues. Good found. But what can they do, can they do anything, I don’t know. I think some security reasons caused that situation.

Similarly the most important thing in any game is not the triumph but the struggle. The essentiel thing is not to have conquered but to have fought well. Mistakes are lessons When you make a mistake don’t look back at it long. Take the reason of the thing into your mind and then look forward. Mistakes are lessons of wisdom; the past cannot be changed. The future is yet in your power. People will forget what you said.People will forget what you did. But people will never forget how you made them feel. Treat everyone as special.. Beginning today, treat everyone you meet as if they were going to be dead by midnight. Extend to them all the care, kindness and understanding you can muster and do it with no thought of no reward. Your life will never be the same. Be yourself Don’t try to be someone you’re not for someones’s sake. Don’t change who you are; If people don’t accept you the way you are It will be their lost. The important thing is to love yourself. Many will seize this day Many will live it to the fullest, Why not you! In life we learn We learn that some people are never what they appear to be. Some we can easily trust And there are the one’s you doubt; But a wise man told me once Ask your heart, it will always tell you. How do we show love It’s not by the words we say words are very deceiving; but love is always shown by the way we act and the things we do. http://www.cenicienta.dk/musik-liste/Bryan%20Ferry%20-%20Dylanesque%20-%2003%20-%20Make%20you%20Feel%20my%20Love(1).mp3¸.•*´¨`*•.¸¸.•*´¨`*•.¸¸.• •*´¨`*•.¸¸.•*´¨`*•.¸¸.•*´¨`*•.¸¸.. * .

    You’re right, there are useful medical ‘properties’ in tomatoes. It only becomes problematic when, natural foods / fruits become chemistry and is transformed into ‘quick fixes’…junk food! 🙂
