Queen’s Birthday

Having the good fortune to have been born in mid-June has given me the privilege of getting a day off to celebrate my own birthday, as well as that of the Queen. A nice perk, by all means, but it has also served to remind me of my heritage, my history and my connection to England. Today, on the Queen’s 93rd birthday, I reflect upon my life, as we all do on our birthdays, and I whisper to myself, “I am proud to be an Australian. I appreciate my English heritage. And I am honoured to share my birthday with a historical living symbol.”

Long live the Queen and may God bestow us with 100 more birthdays!
