The World of Grandpa Don


Switzerland, the day after.


Just wanted to share with y'all what happened here in Switzerland today.

It seems as if today the heavens cried out, it's raining. at 1pm all the church bells in Zurich rang for 15 minutes in memory of the victims. In Bern, our capital, all busses and trams stopped. I never before saw the city in such a sad mood, it was like a huge funeral. Everywhere people stopped what they were doing and quietly listened to the bells, some praying, some trying to suppress the tears, some freely letting go. I have to admit I had a hard time myself to hold back, you just looked people in the eye and were mutually flushed with emotion. 

It seems most of the city is dressed in black today, there is an unprecedented solidarity with the united states and all the victims of this terrible act of war. And this after all gives me some comfort and hope, the civilized world making a clear and united statement today, that this aggression will not stand and will not be tolerated by the free world. 

Be strong, and God bless America.

A Memorial

This event in the history of the world is so momentous and important that it needs a special page on this web site. Some of what is found here  is shared from other sources and some is the result of my thoughts inspired by the events and their aftermath.

Switzerland, the day after.
