Remembering Margaret Thatcher
Earlier this week, I had the honor of participating in the Legislative Memorial Choir. Just to clarify, I was not chosen for my vocal talent, but rather there was a need for more male voices particularly in the bass section. I was honored to participate nonetheless.
This memorial service remembered former legislators who have passed on since the last General Assembly. Many who participated in the memorial service – candle lighters, readers, and choir – were current senators and representatives. It was a very special memorial service for me as I happened to personally know one of the deceased representatives and the family members of another.
One thing which was very apparent for all who participated was the level of respect for those former office holders regardless of party affiliation or political ideology. It was especially meaningful to have current legislators of opposing parties put aside their political differences for a time and give honor to those who have gone before us in the Legislature.
