Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was a pioneering figure in the fight for women’s legal equality and the second woman to serve on the Supreme Court. She died Friday in her Washington home, surrounded by her family. She succumbed to metastatic pancreatic cancer at the age of 87, the Supreme Court said.
Chief Justice John Roberts said,
Our Nation has lost a jurist of historic stature. We at the Supreme Court have lost a cherished colleague. Today we mourn, but with confidence that future generations will remember Ruth Bader Ginsburg as we knew her—a tireless and resolute champion of justice.
I was told—
According to Jewish tradition, a person who dies on Rosh Hashanah, which began Friday evening, is a tzaddik, a person of great righteousness. Baruch Dayan HaEmet.
Whatever your politics or your faith, please send special thoughts to Ms. Ginsburg, her family and dear friends. She is a special lady.
Please listen to the following song, sung by Clay Aiken. It might bring a few tears, but it will also make you feel better!
