PETERS – Queen Elizabeth showed us that grace is possible in public life
LONGTIME READERS AND VIEWERS of Two and Out will know that this space is no friend of the British monarchy.
However, a day after the Queen’s death, we will deign to say something nice.
Despite the atrocities, the colonization and the abuses of power that come along with the monarchy, the opulence and the nonsense of hereditary patronage, Queen Elizabeth herself seemed to be set apart.
The Queen was generally treasured by those who knew her and revered by those who watched her.
She served in her capacity as a leader in public life with warmth, grace and dignity — an example to those who follow.
