Today is 4th of may, the day of the Dodenherdenking (Remembrance of the Dead) in the Netherlands.

We commemorates all civilians and members of the armed forces of The Kingdom of The Netherlands who have died in wars or peacekeeping missions since the beginning of WWII, with 2 minutes of silence.

It's easy to take for granted that you live in a free, peaceful country. Countless strangers sacrificed their lives so we can live in freedom.
