RBG, A Tribute

Ruth Bader Ginsberg, born the same year as my mother, changed the world in ways that benefited women of my generation and younger. In the immediate aftermath of her death, I began writing a tribute. I kept thinking of her impact and how she and my own mother had so many similarities. I had students reach out to me, sharing their grief and their memories of reading about her together.

A friend had shared a link for these shoes that could be purchased at a discount if we placed a group order. I messaged about 10 friends and immediately had an order of 7 pairs.

They arrived today.

In the wake of yesterday’s shameful vote approving a new Supreme Court justice, who will NEVER replace RBG, I’m happy to have them.

I'm a reading specialist from Chicago, now living in the beauty of the Roosevelt National Forest in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. My first book "Aliana Reaches for the Moon" is about a creative, curious, kind and messy girl who loves science and her very patient parents. I'm currently writing a YA novel about a family broken apart by a secret and a misunderstanding. Future books in the Aliana series will include dealing with forest fires, learning about clouds and animal habitats.

  1. I might not like how ACB has ruled on certain things, but I am horrified by the amount of people saying that her seven children are not being adequately parented and that they will suffer because of her job. This is from supposed feminists as well as men. I think that attitude is worse

    1. First of all, I don’t think she deserves to be referred to as ACB as if she has anything to do with the status of RBG. If Amy Coney Barrett had any ethics, she would have requested the vote be delayed until after the election/inauguration.
      I agree that questioning her parenting ability is beside the point but I am horrified and disgusted by the hypocrisy of the Republicans in the senate. I hope they lose their seats.

      1. I don’t compare people. I shorten names. The minute people said something about her not being able to parent and have a job I was fed up with that hypocrisy. As a woman and a mother I was grossly offended. You don’t have to agree with me. But that’s my opinion
