Lady Thatcher, Rest in Peace

Just over a week ago, I viewed the above painting in the Wren Building at the College of William & Mary, where she had been the first female and first British chancellor, and where she is remembered in this obituary — W&M remembers former Chancellor Margaret Thatcher. An article on the woman whose "political principles were largely formed by her Christian faith and in particular her Methodist upbringing" — The Christianity of Margaret Thatcher.

Hers was the first Anglo-American war I opposed; at the age of 12 I sided with the Argies. We had our differences of opinion, but growing up in the '80s without her would have been unthinkable. May she rest in peace.
