Windsor Castle Restored
In 1992, a disastrous fire broke out at Windsor Castle, causing tens of millions in damage.
A lot of people said it could not be rebuilt.
But…it was. Under-budget and ahead of schedule. And with nary a cent of taxpayer monies.
While people, understandably, focus on the royal family, what amazes me…and thrills me…is the realization that craftspeople still exist who can accomplish such work.
The attached video is very well done, and by the end (as images of ruination are contrasted with rebirth), I am in tears. It seems a miracle.
The Queen gives a very moving speech, and her emotions are obvious (something rarely seen).
When you have an hour, I hope you enjoy this video. In a world where so much seems dark, the accomplishments exhibited in the video give me hope for humanity. So many people coming together to create…beauty.
