Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Who had just too much laid on her frail, aging, but willing shoulders. It’s up to us now.

I am gutted.

You are not alone. She was my hero and now she’s gone. Just devastating, but … encouraging just the same. We must keep her legacy alive and well and insure that this monster and all, and I mean all, of his cronies are GONE! From the ashes comes a movement and it totally belongs to Notorius RGB!!!

Pray for us.

It’s horrifying to think that we, the people, might not be able to do anything about this. Our only hope, at this point, is that some senators will stand up and say no to filling the seat right now.

Politics aside, we have lost a great national treasure. She fought long and hard to get where she was. We need someone her equal to fill the vacancy.

An amazing woman. Intelligent beyond belief with a wry sense of humor. That thin parapet she stood on for so long should not have to be held by any one person but she held on as long as she could.

I’m off to a protest at the count courthouse in her honor.

I am so very sad. What a great loss for the country. I vow to continue the fight for equality for all in her honor.

May her memory be a blessing.

I have no words…she fought as long and hard as she could…for all of us…we must carry the torch! My heart aches.

She left us on Rosh Hoshana, the celebration of a new year opening before the people. A fitting ‘graduation day.’ She was amazing.

Gutted is the right word. My world spun, even though rationally I knew the possibility existed.

Jewish people often say “may their memory be a blessing” upon someone’s death, but someone I follow elsewhere quoted an article (I’ll email you the link) from globaljews.org on George Floyd’s death, “may their memory be a revolution”. It hit me right.

May her memory spur a revolution of behaviors and living.

I was and am gutted. It felt as if she was holding on as long as she could, for us.

It is a tragic loss. I heard the news late yesterday and just felt so sad. It wasn’t till today that I thought about the possibility of “you know who” having a chance to put someone of his choice in her place. I’m not familiar with your process but I hope it is possible to hold off for a while at least.

When I first saw the news, I said, “Oh, no!” She held on longer than anyone should have to; may her memory be a blessing (how could it not?).
