So proud to be British.

I love living in America, but it’s times like these that I am truly thankful for the right to remain a British citizen. Over the past few hours, I have laughed and cried over the passing of our beloved Queen Elizabeth.

I am so happy that she is in heaven with her Prince. Yes, it’s like a fairytale, that they spend eternity together.

  1. Many of us have been deeply affected by Her Majesty’s passing. She has been a constant light throughout my life (like you I am in my 70s). Later this afternoon her son, now King Charles, will address the nation. πŸ™

  2. I am a bit ambivalent about the idea of a monarchy and inherited privilege, but I also have so much respect for Queen Elizabeth II for who she was; what she did; how she conducted herself with so much dignity no matter what the circumstances were and remained impartial publicly; how she served her country selflessly; for her faith; her ability to connect with people from all walks of life; her world-beating smile to those she engaged with and how she upheld and promoted the decency, humility and values that the UK aspires to. For these reasons, I am very sad, but also grateful for her service.

  3. Yes, I didn’t think she would last long after he passed. She loved him so much! I admired her as a strong woman who served as a strong leader and inspiration for the people of Great Britain and the rest of the world.

    A Letter From Heaven

    When tomorrow starts without me
    And I’m not here to see,
    If the sun should rise and find your eyes
    Filled with tears for me.

    I wish so much you wouldn’t cry
    The way you did today,
    While thinking of the many things
    We didn’t get to say.

    I know how much you love me
    As much as I love you,
    And each time you think of me
    I know you’ll miss me too.

    When tomorrow starts without me
    Don’t think we’re far apart,
    For every time you think of me
    I’m right there in your heart.
    (Alena Hakala Meadows)

    Until we meet again….
    May flowers always line your path
    and sunshine light your way,
    May songbirds serenade your
    every step along the way,
    May a rainbow run beside you
    in a sky that’s always blue,
    And may happiness fill your heart
    each day your whole life through.
    (Irish Saying)

  5. Even my ESOL students from Mexico and Latin America commented on the passing of the Queen. A social studies teacher did a lesson about it. The social studies teacher next to me spoke of 9/11. I listened behind the door to my classroom remembering well those days. As I also remembered the death of Diana and the events leading to her death. Rest in peace.

  6. Although I’m American, Queen Elizabeth II has been a constant in my life and someone I greatly admired. Standing in front of Buckingham Palace was a special experience for me. I truly believe the hand of God was upon her. β™₯οΈπŸ’•πŸ’•
