Pieter van Vollenhoven visits parents of attacker (30 April)
The parents of Karst T., the man who attempted to attack the RF on April 30 and died as a result, still have emotional stress ever since it happened. (The general public have shown empathy to the family.) According to Volksrant [Dutch] on May 21, Ascension Day, Pieter van Vollenhoven, the spouse of Princess Margriet - on behalf of the RF - visited the parents of Karst T. Not only a thoughtful gesture, but a way for the family to come to terms with their tragedy.
"So keep fightin' for freedom and justice, beloveds, but don't you forget to have fun doin' it. Lord, let your laughter ring forth. Be outrageous, ridicule the fraidy-cats, rejoice in all the oddities that freedom can produce. And when you get through kickin' ass and celebratin' the sheer joy of a good fight, be sure to tell those who come after how much fun it was." - Molly Ivins 1944-2007
