Queen Elizabeth, The World's Grandmother: "Loved and Respected...Because of the Person She Was."
Today as we mourn together the horrific events of 9/11, we also remember how it drew all of us together in our shared grief. Twenty-one years later, we are again brought together by our grief over the passing of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II.
The entire world grieves the passing of an incredible lady who, like her mother during the Blitz, was the "Minister of Morale." Through every crisis and every conflict from World War II on, she brought calm and hope with her happy smile, cheerfully colored couture and blue eyes "that were so full of light."
On 9/11/2001, she ordered the Coldstream Guard outside Buckingham Palace to play The Star Spangled Banner and three days later, during St. Paul's Cathedral's service for the victims of 9/11, the Queen broke all protocols by singing along to our national anthem and The Battle Hymn of the Republic while she wept.
