Greetings and Good Morning Everyone!
I hope all is well, and that you're off to a wonderful start this morning. Today, I wanted to reflect on the life and legacy of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Unfortunately, this incredible trailblazing woman and human-being transitioned from this world on Friday, September 18, 2020. She was 87 years old at the time of her death. The year 2020, has been such a tough one, it has beat us down as a people and a nation. Losing RBG was probably one of my greatest fears. After losing so many of our giants this year alone, I was just hoping that 2020 would let us get past the election. We weren't so lucky. With that said, I would like to spend some time remembering this remarkable woman and her legacy. Without further delay, let's dive into this week's message.
As I went through and read various articles about Ruth Bader Ginsburg this weekend I've been in awe over this woman's brilliance. How lucky are we to have had her live and fight for our rights during this lifetime? So many ways that early work as a lawyer and her service on the Supreme Court has literally helped to change our lives. I think about the gravity of the impact of losing her, and I become overwhelmed with despair and sadness. I know that she was one of a kind. For all the great work she's done, I will say she is truly an inspiration to me. She was fierce and fearless, and I love that she didn't back down from a challenge! This woman's legacy will inspire many little girls and women for years to come. My prayer is that our country doesn't fall apart as a result of her no longer being here. We will move on and of course there will be more women that will be trailblazers and will go even further! Thank goodness we had an opportunity to watch God work wonders through this woman. Ruth Bader Ginsburg truly earned the name "The Notorious RBG."
In closing, I'm truly going to miss Ruth Bader Ginsburg's presence. Her shoes will be difficult for the next Supreme Court Justice to fill. I hope for sure that we will have someone that will think of the needs of all Americans, and not someone that will vote along party lines. This role is so important and many of the decisions that will emerge from this court will be even more critical to our daily live, and I'd be lying if I didn't admit my concern as Congress decides to fill this seat. As I put aside my feelings, I uplift the life and legacy of this incredible woman. Ruth Bader Ginsburg, is a woman whom never knew me, but fought for my rights as a woman and as a minority. She knew that in order to make sure that when she fought for the betterment one, she was fighting for the betterment of all. It is the best thing that we could do for each other is to fight to make life better for each other. Rest In Eternal Power, Ruth Bader Ginsbur
This is How Ruth Bader Ginsburg Wanted to be Remembered
"Someone who used whatever talent she had to do her work to the very best of her ability and to help repair tears in her society, to make things a little better through the use of whatever ability she has. To do something, as my colleague David Souter would say, outside myself. Because I’ve gotten much more satisfaction for the things that I’ve done for which I was not paid."
