I want to thank you all for all the words of sympathy and condolences expressed here as well as in dozens of emails I received directly from you. It is still hard to comprehend to scale of tradegy...

My heart is heavy in solidarity with Poland and its people during this period of grieving for the souls lost from this tragedy.

I've learned so much more now about the lives that were taken beyond Preident.Kaczynski and his wife and that has added to my appreciation and sadness of this event in Poland's soul.

But the strength and determination of Poles will endure--of that, I am very proud and grateful.

Condolences to all of us who's connection to Poland and its people live strong in our hearts...

Jim

I wanted to thank you for nice pictures.

I am wondering how is President's daughter doing since she lost both parents? No one isn't saying any.

Is she married with children and nice husband?

I feel bad for her and her twin uncle.

Oh, Zenon, thank you very much. They are beautiful family.

I never paid attention about Polish President and First Lady before Walesa.

How long President Lech Kaczynski been president and what city he is from. My family are living near Krakow.

How come they are buried in Krakow? Just wondering. I did watch Polish Furneral and it is really heartbreaking.

Lech Kaczyński and his twin brother Jaroslaw were born in Warsaw and have lived there for their whole life. Lech Kaczynski was the President of Poland since 2005 and was one of major candidates in this year presidental election.

He was burried together with his wife Maria in sarcophagus, placed beneath the Wawel Cathedral in Kraków where many of Polish kings and major leaders, like the first Chief of State after regaining liberty in 1918 by Poland Józef Piłsudski, are burried.

A very good quality information about Lech Kaczyński can be found on wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lech_kaczy%C5%84ski .

I was quite shocked for three reasons when I heard this news.

The first reason was because the last words my Dad put down in a notebook before he passed away were the words "Massacre at Katyn". He just handed it to me without saying a word. He'd been through a lot during those war years but didn't speak much about it because there weren't any words to describe it. But he obviously wanted to express something about that event.

The second reason I was shocked was because of the circumstances - why were so many Polish dignitaries flying on one airplace together? Surely for security reasons it would have been best if they had flown separately?

The third reason was how such a major event, with so many tragic losses was not very much publicised or discussed or explained in the world media afterwards.
