MARGARET THATCHER, THE IRON LADY, IS NO MORE.
The lady who took being strong-willed to an entirely new level, especially amongst women; who gave women power an entirely new image; who shattered the long held notion that women are the weak sex; who redefined and personified competence, ability and capability in women; who truly gave an iconic face to the saying that what men can do, women can do better; who showed that if men are tough, women could be tougher; who brought Julius Caesar's Lady Macbeth character back to life; the woman whose steely resolve was so unparalleled and unmatched in modern history that it earned her the acronym 'Iron Lady,' is gone, gone forever and for good. Lady Margaret Hilda Thatcher, British Prime Minister from 1975 to 1990 and thus the longest British Prime Minister on record, has died. Thatcher was 87 years old; and died of complications from stroke and old age infirmities. Icheoku prays God to reward her according to her service on earth. Margaret Thatcher, please say hi to Ronald Reagan if you run into him in the world beyond. Adieu Maggie.
