#MondayThoughts: May her memory be a revolution

Standard

The headline is not original, I’d credit it if could but I’ve only seen it as an unattributed meme.

The loss of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg is devastating on so many levels, not the least of which is the rising tide of authoritarianism. There is so much bad news out of the trump regime and so little attention paid, one by one the stories drop off like they never happened at all.

I’m not hopeful, but I’m also not resigned.

There is a roiling wave of anger like this nation has never seen. Democratic candidates brought in record amounts of money in RBG’s memory, and the best thing we can do is fight. Even when we feel like we’re drowning, we find the surface.

Justice Ginsberg never gave up. She fought her body for years just to be here for us, for this nation, for women, for every citizen, for justice. She fought, she fought hard, and now, it’s our turn.

I will be forever grateful to an icon who is eternal in her legacy. So let’s get to it, folks.

Have an empowered Monday.
