The Big Apple has been treated to royalty again. Queen Elizabeth ll has not been here for many years, and I think she comes at a most auspicious time in our history and the world's as well. She has, I think, come here for many different reasons and it is not just to say hello to the former colonies. She comes here to remind the world what happen on 9/11 and to honor the dead who died on that day of infamy. The attack effected not just Americans, but others of different nationalities and religious faiths. She also came to speak to the United Nations and tell them not to forget the challenges that face the world such as terrorism and climate changes. In regard to her most welcome visit, let me say, “May God save the Queen."
