Queen Elizabeth II, The Queen for Brits, and Ma’am for many. Today is the day when one era came to the end, and perhaps new one has already started. How we all related to this? She was known and loved by 80% of Earth population, who was born and grew enlightened by her presence.
Even the tyrants kneeled down today and expressed their condolences, announcing days in their countries for mourn the late Queen, the century of politics and culture.
Just after the announcement about death of The Queen a double rainbow appeared over Buckingham palace and Windsor Castle, as if it was an open path… There’s a legend about Leprechaun, who can with his shillelagh open a magical rainbow path to teleport to the beautiful land – paradise. Did the Leprechauns opened this path to The Queen today?
