How North Carolinians are remembering Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Congressman David Price:

“On the bench, Justice Ginsburg led with brilliance, integrity, and fortitude. Justice Ginsburg also remained resilient while facing personal obstacles throughout her life such as caring for her seriously ill husband or battling cancer. As an exemplary public servant who looked out for the long-term health of the American people and our democracy, she leaves enormous shoes that won’t easily be filled.

“Justice Ginsburg left a final statement with her granddaughter: “My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new President is installed.” Any senator with a shred of integrity must honor this wish, particularly in light of the Republican Senate’s refusal to schedule a vote for President Obama’s nominee Merrick Garland throughout 2016. To rush a Trump nominee to a Senate vote would not only be breathtaking hypocrisy; it could irreparably compromise and damage the Court.”

    A fighter, a brilliant and courageous woman who through her work lets all women know that they are not second in anyone’s book and they are equal and capable of doing whatever their vision is in making a tremendous contribution to society through justice and equality. She is the kind of person you want to live into her 100s. What a brave soul; what a treasure; what a lost. To rush her replacement is the highet sense of gross insensitivity. It should not even be a question to consider.
