To my awesome friends in England moral victories can be hollow but this squad played for Queen and Country and for those of us from other places who love your nation. May this reinvigorate the pride you have in your country and make the game of football stronger. Three Lions come back for World Cup 2022 better and stronger.
Congratulations to England on a dramatic penalty kick win today in FIFA World Cup Football action. Try not to make it so close next time! Go England!
I admire this woman for all the things she has done in her reign. She hasn’t been perfect but she has shown strength, character and grace under pressure. Although I am an American I consider her my queen. Long live The Queen!
Prince Harry marries Meghan Markle today at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle. I woke up at 4 AM Eastern Time today to watch the service because I am such a Anglophile and a big fan of current events like this. Today is a day of joining two people who are doing great things for others.
Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby will conduct the service but the Most Rev. Michael Curry who is presiding bishop of the Episcopal church of which I am a member of will be delivering a sermon so I am excited about that.
The Royal Family along with people from charity, celebrity, sport and the community are gathered together to celebrate this joyous day. This is a happy occasion, love rules and wins.
Happy Mother’s Day to all those who are mom’s in the United Kingdom. Your role in making your country and its communities special is awesome. Some of you are playing the role of both mother and father in one person and I salute you. Thanks for being you!
Happy Boxing day to everyone who is celebrating today!
