The Queen's Diamond Jubilee
She might be the queen but she is also a mother and a grandmother. She may be associated with a privileged lifestyle but no amount of privileges shield a person from the impact of family relationships and the ups and downs that are a part of life. She has had to deal with family break-ups, deaths and upset - the kind of things many of us might experience. I think that is worth remembering.
The diamond jubilee is one of those events that unites the nation and brings people together with a strong sense of patriotism. It's quite rare that you feel the whole country is joined together sharing in an experience and leaving all other cares aside. It makes a nice change! People fought the crowds and the rain to be a part of the celebrations, showing their support not just for the queen but for the country as a whole.
Did you do anything special to celebrate the queen's diamond jubilee?
