So, Margaret Thatcher has made her transition… Here is what I wrote on my facebook page a couple of minutes ago..
“Well you know Old Father Time takes us all in the end! How we lived out our lives was always down to us, our choices, our decisions, our perceptions and finally our legacy… and she was no different. Like all of us she had her individual story, her beliefs, her patterning, her truths – some of which she had imposed on her as she grew up, and others she collected and owned along the way. Was she a loving, caring person in private life? We cannot know, only her surviving children can know the truth of that. Perhaps she did her best – people usually do – perhaps there were things she regretted – we cannot know. Perhaps her drivers – her triggers – were things we cannot identify with, and perhaps she felt she had to take on and fight the whole world. History will change her story no doubt, transform it, mutate it, iron out some parts and accentuate others so that in the end, know one living will know. For me, I will always wonder how a person (and a mother) makes a decision to send young men into conflict… To have your hand upon the mechanism that will undoubtedly cause the death of another must surely test the sanity of the soundest mind. It is far beyond my understanding.”
