Miss Thatcher

I’ve always thought of Margaret Thatcher (the Iron Lady and Former British Prime Minister) as an incredible role model. Power, Class, Confidence, Intelligence, Grace, and Dignity were just a few of her qualities.  She was well-spoken, well-dressed, and stood up for her beliefs.  I think emulating just an iota of who she was, what she believed in, and how she acted would be an incredible accomplishment.

Some of the words I hope to live by on a regular basis, are attributed to her infinite wisdom:

Being powerful is like being a lady. If you have to tell people you are, you aren’t.

I usually make up my mind about a man in ten seconds, and I very rarely change it.

To wear your heart on your sleeve isn’t a very good plan; you should wear it inside, where it functions best.

and… “I, personally, have always voted for the death penalty because I believe that people who go out prepared to take the lives of other people forfeit their own right to live. I believe that the death penalty should be used only very rarely, but I believe that no-one should go out certain that no matter how cruel, how vicious, how hideous their murder, they themselves will not suffer the death penalty.

So this is to Miss Margaret Thatcher today.  Someone to emulate, someone to aspire to, and someone who will be greatly missed. Thankfully her incredible legacy will always live on.
