There are so many people better qualified than me to write about this, and they are doing so. Feel free to check them out. This is mostly for me. I process by writing, and I have a lot to process before I can begin to care for my kiddos.
I keep bursting into tears. Ryan keeps coming to give me cuddles. I don’t want to scare him. I don’t want to be responsible for a meltdown, but I feel like I am having a meltdown of my own.
Ruth Bader Ginsburg was the ultimate in strong mom badassery. She went back to law school after her first baby was born and while caring for her husband who had cancer, and she graduated top of her class! Ya’ll, I wanted a trophy yesterday for reading a book.
She spent her life pushing America to be better. She demanded equality, not just for women, but for minorities, immigrants, and people with disabilities. She has been literally shaping the nation since 1993.
She fought for us all until literally the day she died.
There is work to be done to protect her legacy. For today, though, I will focus on breathing as I mourn her loss.
