I am with all of you, who understand womanhood in all its possibilities and who admired such a person as Ruth Bader Ginsburg was, I also admire Mary Williamson, who even tried to run for President of our country and for whom I would have voted, and even contributed with my little resources to her campaign.

As of this day, Ruth Bader Ginsburg is no longer an old woman. And I have mixed feelings about her death. On one hand I love John Irving’s words, “Give her back, God! Give her back!” I join with others in despair at what Mitch McConnell might do now - and who are we kidding, what he most assuredly will do. But on the other hand, it’s just too much of a sign that she died literally hours before the setting sun that ushers in Rosh Hashanah. According to the tenets of Judaism, the most righteous souls die at such an hour. And she was such a righteous soul. Several years ago I was with a group on a tour bus in Jerusalem; we stopped at a red light and right below me walking on the sidewalk was RBG! I was so startled I couldn’t believe it. I’ve always wished I had said “Let me out of the bus!” so that I could go introduce myself, but I remember thinking at the time that I didn’t know where I would go if the bus went on without me. Pretty dumb, of course. But it happened so quickly. She was walking with three men who looked like bodyguards, and I learned later in the day she was there to receive an award. I always thought it amazing that the one place I saw her was in the Holy Land. So as sorry as I am that she’s gone, for all the obvious reasons, I think there’s a way that all of us need to be glad for her ...to grow up now and do the work ourselves. I’ve said for years that our generation had a prolonged post adolescence...that we had failed to fully mature. God knows we’re dealing with the consequences of all that now. But you can’t say that about people like RBG. She was mature in every possible way. And now we have to take it from here. It is our turn to show up, to be mature, to serve our country. She was so in love with her husband and they get to be together now. It’s almost greedy of us to ask for even one more day of her than we were given. We know what we need to do and we need to do it. If anyone deserves a rest, it is she. She will continue her journey in eternity; let’s up our game in our journey here. Dear God, please bless this precious soul. We thank you for the time we had her in our midst. May we be better people for having known her as we did. Amen

Marianne Williamson

If you want to be a true professional, you will do something outside yourself. Something to repair tears in your community. Something to make life a little better for people less fortunate than you. That's what I think a meaningful life is - Living not for oneself, but for one's community.
- Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Comment by janice wilson on September 19, 2020 at 10:09pm

"I am an optimist because I know that there is the possibility of change if people really care to make it happen. And that's important, because I never could have done what I did if there hadn't been a groundswell of women in the late 60s and throughout the 70s wanting to tear down the barriers — wanting to free both women and men to be you and me, to follow your own talents as far as they could take you."
-- Ruth Bader Ginsburg -- RIP

“I would like to be remembered as someone who used whatever talent she had to do her work to the very best of her ability."

— Ruth Bader Ginsburg
