193 Dutch and so many more angels in heaven

193 Dutch photo's yelling
silenced heartbreaking stories
flying both not and too sky high
angels in heaven

(c)  Elly Wouterse

two pages of the morning paper... 193 pictures of Dutch people killed @ the plane incident in the Ukraine sky... and there are so many many more and all are telling - silenced for ever - a heartbreaking story.. 
and there are so many more saddening situations... 

I hope you don't mind - being Dutch - that I wrote this little poem about that terrible moment of facing those faces for the first time..

    I think it is good that you responded to this tragedy with an ode. I wrote something a while back called Tragedy which was about another murder Peace & Love Matthew Anish
