I knew I had to take it all in this weekend with smoke from the western states of the U.S. making its way to Europe. The overly abundant activity of hurricanes and destruction that hit the Gulf Coast states with many more on the way, as they are now into the "alpha names" as listed names for the season are now depleted. All this, with the pandemic, racial reckoning, social discord of the country all ready into months of raging. And then Friday night, the unwelcomed news that a true superhero, wonder woman, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's passing. The Notorious RBG crossed over after fighting the good fight for decades for us all, leaving us with a legacy of service and justice for women's rights, racial equality, and speaking up for those who are oft-forgotten, never asking or looking for anything in return.
On Sunday after being unable to sleep, watching the "Notorious RBG" on CNN in the wee hours of the morning, I couldn't stop. All news nets, online, anything and everything I could get, I was drawn in and overwhelmed by this incredible woman's legacy within my lifetime. I was asked to take a break by "the manfriend" with a drive through Plymouth cranberry bogs on this beautiful fall day, followed by lunch at the Roll Street Tavern, a newly opened spot in town. Not a minute after being seated, on the wall in front of me were quotes from Dr. Seuss, Steve Jobs, Rocky, and there she was - a stand out among them in her likeness with one of her many memorable quotes: “Fight for the things that you care about. But do it in a way that will lead others to join you.” - Supreme Court Justice, Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
Justice Ginsburg, we will not let you down.
