Today the public of the Netherlands has their chance to say their farewells to crime reporter Peter R. de Vries, who was shot almost 2 weeks ago and passed away last week from his injuries.

Because I'm not in Amsterdam today I wanted say my farewell in the public space of the Fediverse: Peter, you have helped so many for so long; I hope people will help your family now and hope others will stand up, and take you as an example of how to be a good person. Farewell Peter!

Will probably be uploading that file somewhere so others don't have to go through this.
