A maniac killed and wounded many people on last Queensday (Koninginnedag) in Apeldoorn, 30th of april 2009,
He drove his car with high speed through the crowd, trying to ram the bus with the royal family.

A short sequence of a girl crying was shown on the dutch televison .
She had ribbons with the shown colors in her hair:
red white and blue-> dutch flag and orange->the royal family is the house of Orange.
Until that sequence was shown, everything was a bit unreal to me.
Queensday was over!
This is my interpretation of that girl just before she burst out crying.
