Promises to Keep (to RBG)

Ruth Bader Ginsburg died last night and I’m deeply saddened by that. When I reflect on the impact this one person had on our country I am awed. When I think about the weight of expectation and guidance so many put on one person, I’m a little ashamed. Was that fair to ask someone to fight for equity in our names until her absolute last breath? I don’t know. But she took on that weight and bore it with amazing grace. She said, “Fight for the thing that you care about, but do it in a way that will lead others to join you.”

Thinking about her brought me to this song by Eliza Gilkyson. It was written about a year ago, but it could be written for today. So here it is with some images added.

One thought on “Promises to Keep (to RBG)

  1. I agree with you… should we put that much pressure on one person? Ruth Bader Ginsburg has been a remarkable women and has been a true leader with such intelligence and grace. Let’s all hope the next Supreme Court Justice is able to do the same job.
