In moments like these

The+Queen%2C+Art+%26+Living+-Lightness+of+Being+_+Chris+Levine

Never before this week I felt so strongly the meaning-  and the need – for a Queen.

It is in moment like these, that one tells the difference between a Prime Minister, a President of the Republic. And a Queen.

We’ve seen a lot of President Hollande in the media these days. But in moments like these, France – and Mali, and Lebanon and and… – would need a Queen. A stately figure. An embodiement of the State. But not a politician. Not a government figure. Someone who can call for unity and strenght under dire circumstances. But who cannot be ascribed to a political view.

Someone who can show strenght, a pure one, not a relative one. And wisdom.

Someone who does not need to guard himself or herself from the far-right opposition, and does not need to say or do things in order to avoid being overtaken by opponents. Or at the next elections.

Poor Marianne could fit the purpose, but her image is too frequently abused by the far right.

It is incredible, but in moment like these, a Queen could be the best embodiement of the Republic.

A wise Queen, yes. A mother.
