Ok…at first, I have a WTF moment when the media start to make a big deal about Michelle Obama touching the Queen of England. I mean really! What’s the big deal right? Then I saw the video.
Here if you have not seen it:
Wow…this woman is OLD! I think that Michelle was scared she was going to fall right over on the floor. Talk about an international incident. Media would say she tried to kill off the Queen of England. Why? Because they are all looking for something to be wrong with this ass-kicking, strong woman.
Moreover, I would like to state, once and for all, that we do not have royality in this country. As a matter of nature, the disbelief in royality is what America was founded on. We do have many faults. Gratis. But, without a doubt, we are just not attacted to the bow and scrap mentality!
I am not saying that the practices of other countries are wrong. Each to their own. But, when a touch of appreciation and respect turns into an international incident, there is something wrong. Michelle Obama treated the Queen as an equal. That makes me proud of her as a woman and as an American. And, to her great credit, Queen Elizabeth responded to this warm gesture in kind and without hestitation!
Realistically, it made me proud of both of these women to accomplish something, in 5 minutes, that men have not accomplished in 200 years…the joining arms of our two great countries again! ~~Dee
