Last night Ruth Bader Ginsburg passed away at 87. We lost a giant at only 5 ft 1 in. She paved the way for women’s rights and the rights of the oppressed. She lived with dignity and integrity and stood up for injustice and corruption. Now Mitch McConnell wants to hurry a Trump nominee through a vote in the Senate. In 2016 the same Mitch McConnell blocked President Obama’s nominee saying the American people need to speak and it being an election year we should wait until after the election. I believe the same words apply now. For me, the death of Ruth means as women we need to pick up the torch and carry her good works forward.
I will not be silent, I will not turn a blind eye to corruption and dishonesty. Our President has failed to protect us, govern for all Americans (not just his base). He has turned a blind eye to injustice in this country and in many ways has contributed to it. I will continue to speak. I will continue to seek justice and unity in our country. We are better than this and we need to act better than this. Women and Americans for justice UNITE!
