As the world watched, an exceptional woman was carried from one destination to another, with all the trappings of royalty. And, she deserved every accolade, military band, gun salute and royal guard that accompanied her along the route from Balmoral Castle to Westminster Hall. She is The Queen. We don’t have a queen or king in America, so we idolize sports figures, movie stars and even politicians. They continually disappoint us, but The Queen did not fail her people. Queen Elizabeth II didn’t choose her role in life, but she vowed to fulfill it until the end. May we take our God-given responsibilities, whether chosen or not, as seriously as she.
