Margaret Thatcher -- Memory Eternal!

I read with sorrow this morning the announcement of the death of Baroness Thatcher.

In my youth, while a student at Dickinson College, I and my fellows in the Dickinson College Tory Club sent a telegram congratulating Thatcher on her election. We insisted that it be sent in old form with the word "STOP" in place of periods:

Congratulations STOP Whatever you plan to do don't stop STOP

As one of the giants who led the West in the defeat of the Soviet Union, with the consequent freeing of the Orthodox Church from the Bolshevik Yoke, Thatcher should have the gratitude of all Orthodox Christians, even those who might disagree with some of her stances on some matters involving what the Latins call "prudential judgements".

Memory Eternal! Memory Eternal! Memory Eternal!
