For Justice Ginsburg

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg had surgery Thursday after being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, the court said.

With gratitude
for her years
of faithful service
and wishing her
all the best

Holding Justice Ginsburg in the light... As a very young woman, I read a text she wrote on constitutional law and women's rights that was so crucial to my formation as a feminist. One more woman who made a big difference in a lot of people's lives...

Thank you all.

Earthbound Spirit, I thank you for that personal perspective. It is so easy to view "important" figures from afar with all their symbolic trappings and forget about the very specific, personal effect they have on our lives. By your witness we are linked a little closer to this great woman.
