Wedding of the Century

Over 2-Billion people are said to have watched the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton; approximately 1950 actually attend and the streets of London were lined with on-lookers.

Why Americans and people around the world should care what the Royals in general and what Queen Elizabeth and the British Monarchy have done in the past, plus what Prince/King Charles and Prince/King William might do or be involved in, in the future, is a very long subject or list of subjects for another day!  (But it might be worth you doing some research on your own if you are interested or curious and don’t know much about history, present day politics and/or perhaps even prophecy!)

But as for the Prince William and Kate’s wedding, I believe that many people watched with delight because they wanted a break from the daily negativity and stress.  It was entertaining and for just a couple of hours or perhaps as long as a few days, people could escape into a fairytale.

There were also those who wanted to see a better ending or continuation to the Charles and Diana story.

Almost every little girl wants to be a princess and every big girl wants to find her prince.  So for a little while many Americans, even me who is very up on history, politics and out of the box possibilities, turned off the reality switch and watched the ‘Wedding of the Century” as it was billed, from the perspective that just maybe dreams do come true and that there is hope for the world to be a better place than our more rational minds believe.

A Priest (actually a Verger) at Westminster Abbey was so excited after the Royal Wedding Friday, he was caught on camera doing cartwheels down the aisle.

About Ask Marion

I am a babyboomer and empty nester who savors every moment of my past and believes that it is the responsibility of each of us in my generation and Americans in general to make sure that America is as good or even a better place for future generations as it was for us. So far... we haven't done very well!! Favorite Quotes: "The first 50 years are to build and acquire; the second 50 are to leave your legacy"; "Do something that scares you every day!"; "The journey in between what you once were and who you are becoming is where the dance of life really takes place". At age 62 I find myself fighting inoperable uterine Cancer and thanks to the man upstairs and the prayers from so many people including many of my readers from AskMarion and JustOneMorePet... I'm beating it. After losing our business because of the economy and factors related to the re-election of President Obama in 2012 followed by 16-mos of job hunting, my architect-trained husband is working as a trucker and has only been home approximately 5-days a month since I was diagnosed, which has made everything more difficult and often lonely... plus funds are tight. Our family medical deductible is 12K per year for two of us; thank you ObamaCare. But thanks to donations from so many of you, we are making ends meet as I go through treatment while taking care of my father-in-law who is suffering from late stage Alzheimer's and my mother-in-law who suffers from RA and onset dementia as well as hearing loss, for which there are no caretaker funds, as I continue the fight here online to inform and help restore our amazing country. And finally I need to thank a core group of family, friends, and readers... all at a distance, who check in with me regularly. Plus, I must thank my furkids who have not left my side through this fight. You can see them at JustOneMorePet.
