Today Australia stops to remember our dearly departed sovereign, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
Never in modern history has there been a more dignified monarch, a more dutiful leader, or a more decent human.
She embodied humanity’s very best virtues and values; service and sacrifice, fortitude and humility, grace and generosity, forgiveness, and empathy.
Virtues and values which we still admire, but which are often found wanting in a more retributive, revisionist and self-entitled world today.
Perhaps our Queen’s greatest triumph will be a renaissance of these virtues and values as we remember her evermore.
May she rest in peace.
Long live the King.
