A really sad story...

The saddest story of the day is about a campsite near a village in Groningen, the Netherlands, which has been a place of refuge for homeless divorcees as yet more sorrow has been added to the tragedies of love. The residents are not allowed to live there anymore...
The local authority has discovered that people have been staying for months on end and that’s in violation of the zoning plan.

The melodrama is that the campsite as a place “where gallons of tears must have been shed” will be gone. The elderly couple who run the site say they hardly have any holidaymakers and the campsite’s transformation into a modern-day heartbreak hotel was a gradual one. “First came one broken-hearted soul. Then came someone else whose partner had thrown them out on the street.” Their efforts to have the place reclassified as social services accommodation have come to nothing and now the residents will have to move on. That’s bad news for one resident whose break-up left him so shattered that he couldn’t even respond to the local council’s offers of housing. “I needed the peace and quiet here at the campsite. Even going into town was more than I could bear.”
And that's sad...

You can break down temples, synagoges, churches, mosques but you cannot break someone’s heart since God lives there.
