CDA: Queen Elizabeth II
I can't remember the last time a celebrity death made me tear up. Maybe Peggy Lee? Maybe not. I got a phone call from Richard - - a text wouldn't suffice, it was too serious a bit of news. I can't think of another public figure whose image and presence had such meaning and power.
I'll share two videos. First, her 21st birthday address. Always touches me deeply.
And our favorite QE2 moment in our household, her star appearance at the 2012 summer Olympics. With James Bond.
