"It does not matter what status you hold; being a mother is sure to teach you a love that you never thought possible.
Queen Mathilde of the Belgians knows this, as she gave birth to four children herself. And on Wednesday, 20 October, she represented all mothers at De Bode – To the Missing Children monument in the Warande Park, Brussels.
There, she stood silently and laid a single white rose—a poignant tribute to all children that went missing and fell victims to sexual exploitation or abuse.
The event was held to mark the 25th anniversary of the White March, a protest with no signs and no chants that was held on the day a Belgian sex offender and murderer was arrested."
