In memory of RBG. Thank you for everything.
RBG carried more on her shoulders than any person should have to bear, and she did it with dignified power, powerful grace, and graceful dignity. There will never be another like her, and the burden is now on us to turn her hard work into an enduring legacy.
We cannot – nor should we – wait for someone to take her place. As the poet June Jordan once said, echoed most famously by President Barack Obama, “We are the ones we have been waiting for.”
Now is the time to do good and be good.
