Ruth – grieving the passing of a true hero – #Listen

So much seems unjust. We have so much to grieve.

And right now, we have a particular grief. Like so many people in the United States of America and around the world, I am saddened by the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg. There is nothing that can compare with her contribution to women and other people whose rights have been thwarted by the judicial system.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg: A national hero

#RIP RBG - grieving Ruth

And at the same time, during the pandemic, we cannot help but blur the lines between all the griefs. Ginsburg’s death is huge and it is also muddled with the 200,000 deaths of this time.

In the throes of this grief, you can imagine that I needed the release of piano improvisation. So that’s what you get today: “Ruth”, a spontaneous composition (on the piano). May it honor her soul. Rest in peace. Rest in power.

Ruth tells us: Time to act

Ruth Bader Ginsburg - "I dissent"

Now that I’ve had my time to be sad about the loss of Ruth from this earthly existence, I am ready to act. I hope you are, too. We must continue her legacy and make a world that is better for women, people of color, and anyone who is put down by the frailty of the powerful.

“So that’s the dissenter’s hope: that they are writing not for today but for tomorrow.”

~Ruth Bader Ginsburg

“People ask me sometimes, when—when do you think it will it be enough? When will there be enough women on the court? And my answer is when there are nine.”

~Ruth Bader Ginsburg

“We are a nation made strong by people like you.”

“If we gave up our freedom as the price of security, we would no longer be the great nation that we are.”

~Ruth Bader Ginsburg

“Fight for the things that you care about, but do it in a way that will lead others to join you.”

~Ruth Bader Ginsburg
