Her Majesty The Queen: Duty, Consistency, and Steadfastness

It was inevitable – as we all die someday. And yet most are stunned that it has come to be.

Queen Elizabeth II has died at 96, having just celebrated seventy years of duty to the sovereign British people and those of the Commonwealth. She was part of a 1209 year-old bloodline dating back to the 9th century and covering 37 generations. In a word, The Queen represents a vessel for history unfolding across feudal societies the span of time.

September 8, 2022, marked the passing of not just, the longest-reigning British monarch, or just one of the most remarkable women of our time, but rather a denotation, a rip in humanity, of what came before, and what is to come after.

Consider some notable female leaders who carved the soul of humanity to leave a unique indentation in the era in which they presided and long after, such as :

  • Nefertiti ( Leader of Egypt).
  • Cleopatra VII (Leader of Egypt).
  • Wu Zetian (Leader of China).
  • Catherine Il the Great ( Leader of Russia).
  • Queen Victoria ( Leader of England).
  • Queen Elizabeth I ( Leader of England).
  • Mary, Queen of Scots (Leader of Scotland).
  • Maria Theresa ( Leader of Austria).
  • Marie Antoinette ( Leader of France).

Now accept into their ranks: Queen Elizabeth II ( Leader of England).

The United States is irrevocably intertwined with one of the greatest empires in history. And while Americans have no sovereign to rule over us nonetheless we respect and admire the British Monarchy and Britons’ devotion and affection for its hierarchical system and traditions. It is a special relationship no doubt between our two countries and we send our warmest condolences to our sisters and brothers across the pond today.

I am reminded of this moment in history in 1920s  England at the ceremony of the unknown warrior. The song is a British patriotic hymn, “I Vow To  Thee, My Country.” Listen to the words brave Brit’s , may they provide comfort to you now-

 

Three words best describe Queen Elizabeth II, and those are duty, consistency, and steadfastness. She applied these qualities to her family, her country, and her place in history.

There have been numerous documentaries made through the years about the Queen. But below is one I feel reveals all known facets of her rule and her humanity. As pointed out in the documentary she was an enigma and kept her most treasured self – private.

We live in a world moving so fast and at times with little meaning attached to the rotations that many of us dismiss tradition altogether. Reverence for our way of life and faith has been fading for sometime now and is openly mocked. Most do not even know that the Sovereign holds the title ‘Defender of the Faith and Supreme Governor of the Church of England‘. Or that during her Coronation she is anointed with Holy Oil before investiture and crowning. This is an ancient sacred ritual that places the sovereign above man for those believers.

One of Queen Elizabeth II enduring legacy will be that of her faith and commitment to those values which promote healthy families and communities – consistently honoring a  way of life that held purpose, had order and direction.

Blessed speed Dearest Queen and may you rest with the peace of Christ…

May your grandchildren carry on your spirit of duty, consistency, and steadfastness. May England remain traditionally bound and purpose driven to defend her natural order in this world.

And, long live the Monarchy!

  1. Profound and fitting words on this occasion of the loss of one we all knew.
    Queen Elizabeth has been part of our lives and and reached out to so many across Europe, the Commonwealth and the world.
    I always drew comfort from the stability she represented amidst the storms in an increasingly violent and hateful world.
    Even if we are not monarchists or even oppose it we should be able to admire the qualities and values it promotes and we are all called to be noble.
    Farewell, Elizabeth, may you reach your eternal heavenly home.

"The simple step of a courageous individual is to not take part in the lie. One word of truth outweighs the world." Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

I was born and raised in the enigma known as "The Big Easy." There, rooted along the banks of the great Mississippi River between the creeping bayou and Lake Pontchartrain, I was conscripted on all things pertaining to human nature.  I am the quintessential southern woman, that is to say, I defy most could never accurately define what that label truly represents.  Brined below sea level where one respects; the haunts lingering about, the force of storm surge, the ethos of Mardi Gras, and the sanctity of generational family-I know what it is to belong to an organically diverse culture.

Early on in life, my career path serpentined and led to brief stints of living varied experiences as I indulged my passions for painting, musical theater, and the culinary arts. My young experiences evolved my purpose and honed my intuitive skills and I became a Medical Professional specializing in mental health with a focus on child/adolescent needs. After living decades in NOLA, and after hurricane  Katrina unearthed the realities of modern-day inner cities, I made the pivotal decision to relocate to where my family and I spent our summers in a quest to find security and civility in my life.

High up on one of the "grandfather mountains" I now perch in a Smoky mountain community in East Tennessee. Although, I would not trade my formative years in Louisiana, unfortunately,  that era of  America  is  no longer obtainable in the times we live - changing course was the best decision "Evah!"

I am a warrior  for freedom and truth , steeped in my ancestral history ,I am constantly reminded that stillness and introspection expands the mind and heart to possess a more nuanced understanding of all things in our internal and external world. We are all destined to bash ourselves against the rotted cultural rocks of humanity's unraveling until we recognize that a shared moral tone is essential for a free society. A healthy culture is one comprised of many unique people who offer shading and depth to the experience of living, yet all choose to accept basic truths that bind us all together-a societal moral tone. Intolerance  , censorship, intersectionality, cancel culture, apathy ,and ignorance will only groom oppression and tyranny.  Critical thought, differentiation, and dissent is your individual right granted not by government -and must always be protected, championed, and defended.
