To Witness One Event in History

Leave a comment

The question is: If you could have personally witnessed one event in history, what would you want to have seen?

My Answer:

The Day is November 17th and the year is 1558.   I am decked out in the most extravagant gown I could find, standing along the edge of a red carpet that has been stretched along the center of the polished tile floor.   The high ceilings of the Westminster Abbey in London rise high above my head, reminding me how small I really am.   The crowd has gathered outside of the Abbey, but I have the privilege to be standing inside with a handful of others, witnessing in person this amazing historic event.   I am waiting with some apprehension for Elizabeth I to walk down that red carpet and take her seat upon a gold throne that waits at the end.   Today Elizabeth I of London will be crowned queen of both London and Ireland.   Today is her coronation, and that is the historic event I have chosen to see.
