R.I.P., Queen Elizabeth II

Posted on | September 8, 2022 | Comments Off on R.I.P., Queen Elizabeth II

When she was just a 14-year-old girl, and England stood alone against Hitler’s terrifying Nazi war machine, Elizabeth inspired her nation by going on the BBC to broadcast a message full of hope and courage: “We are trying to do all we can to help our gallant sailors, soldiers, and airmen, and we are trying, too, to bear our own share of the danger and sadness of war. We know, every one of us, that in the end all will be well. For God will care for us, and bring us victory and peace.”

Unlike some of her children and grandchildren, Queen Elizabeth always strove to uphold the essential dignity of her royal status. She was loved by her subjects, and her death today at age 96 brings to an end a reign that is likely to be remembered fondly by future generations.
