I usually have my next few posts lined up in my head, and I had planned to spend Saturday morning writing a new post and putting the finishing touches on the green linen project. Then, I woke up to the terrible news of Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death.
Ginsburg was such an inspiration to me as a young woman, and she has continued to inspire me, and to inspire my daughters as well. We have lost a true hero. I hate that her death will be turned into a circus of villainy and hypocrisy, as those in power on the right gleefully pounce. I spent the weekend feeling sad and disheartened. However, for me and for millions of others, nothing will diminish her legacy. We will mourn her, and we will celebrate her life. We will continue to care about justice, and we will continue to fight. And we will vote.
Yes we will!
Thank you for sharing your thoughts. So many of us share your grief and are struggling to hold on to the inspiration Justice Ginsburg offered us all.
Yes, that’s our best tribute to such heroes – to carry on striving for justice.
Yes indeed, Kelly. Thanks for saying it so well.
Well said. Thank you for sharing and caring, and speaking our collective heart. And yes, vote. I think that may be only the first thing on the list of what we will do in the fullness of time; as you say, and as Ginsberg modeled, we’ll carry on fighting for justice.
She was a true inspiration!
A real hero, may her legacy live on!
