Queen Comforts Wounded and Sends A Message

The photograph above is Windsor Castle circa September 2001 and the Union flag is flying at half staff in honour of those Americans who lost their lives on 9/11.

The toll in London is rising and is expected to peak at over 50 dead. Over 700 have been wounded, many seriously. We are all in this one together folks. Weird Beard and his wicked Islamic terrorist ghouls delight in the suffering and believe it is supported by Allah.

From BBC News

The Queen made the [these] comments as she met survivors of the explosions at the Royal London Hospital in Whitechapel. Her hospital visit came as Prince Charles and his wife, the Duchess of Cornwall, met staff and survivors at St Mary's Hospital, Paddington. She was cheered and applauded as she entered the hospital's canteen to address staff. In a forthright speech, she [Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II] said:

"Yesterday's bombings in London have deeply affected us all. "I know I speak for everyone in expressing my sympathy to those who have been caught up in these events and, above all, to the relatives and friends of those who have lost their lives.

"My thoughts are also with the injured, some of whom I have been able to see and talk to today.

"I also want to thank you and all the members of the emergency services and transport for London who are working with such care, professionalism and sensitivity, often in very difficult condition. "You have the respect of us all as you go about your business."

Community feeling

The Queen said: "I want to express my admiration for the people of our capital city who in the aftermath of yesterday's bombings are calmly determined to resume their normal lives. "This is the answer to this outrage. Sadly we in Britain have been all too familiar with acts of terror and members of my generation, especially at
this end of London, know that we have been here before.

"But those who perpetrate these brutal acts against innocent people should know that they will not change our way of life.

"Atrocities such as these simply reinforce our sense of community, our humanity and our trust in the rule of law. That is the clear message from us all."

Indeed she knows. As Princess Elizabeth, she stood by her father's side (King George VI) through the dark year's of the Blitz in WWII. She also drove an ambulance in those years and knows a thing or two about assisting the wounded amidst great carnage.
Kermit, my American blogger friend of Bubba's Bog, said it best yesterday.
God Save the Queen!

where else could an ambulance driver become Queen? Where else would the future Queen become an ambulance driver? I say it again...
