It was on this date that the world lost the presence of a beautiful soul, when sons lost their mother, a brother lost his sister, a mother lost her daughter – and the world took a long look at how she had been hounded throughout her time as Princess.
I was one of millions who admired the young lady who grew into a woman most men would be proud to have at their side. A woman who took on unpopular causes, a mother who would expose her boys to a reality beyond the castle gates. Her beauty and compassion grew over the years and so did her sadness. After a time it was obvious.
Today, on this anniversary of her death I remember Diana, Princess of Wales, and wonder what might have been if not for the race to evade paparazzi.
I found this montage online along with Elton John’s moving memorial song. Perhaps you also remember the day we lost the Princess of the people’s hearts.
