“We should take comfort that while we may have more still to endure, better days will return: we will be with our friends again; we will be with our families again; we will meet again.” – Queen Elizabeth, 2020
I needed this today. When someone like the Queen who saw the beginning and end of WWII offers guidance and encouragement, it’s best to be quiet and listen.
Notice the message isn’t all roses and hope. She knows from experience that there will be difficult times ahead, and the recovery will be long, but we need to endure.
Nobody likes a bridge to nowhere. Her message is the bridge we need to believe in. It’s the promise of reunification and normalcy on the other side.
