The End of an Elizabethan Era

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Royal family on this sad day. Queen Elizabeth II gave all of herself to the service of her realm and her crown, for all of her life, and most especially for the seventy years in which she reigned. She was a person to be admired, a legendary monarch, and a very gracious queen.

Rest In Peace.

I'll leave you with this, my favorite speech of hers that she made on her 21st birthday in 1947.
