#RBG & Civility

In honor of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s recent passing, Virginia is finishing her week of post-a-day ImageQuotes with something profound and challenging from her.

“You can disagree without being disagreeable.” 

Ruth Bader Ginsburg

15 March 1933 – 18 September 2020

R.I.P. #RBG!

p.s. Here’s a link to a particularly moving article about Ruth Bader Ginsburg written by NPR’s Nina Totenburg (it had me in tears!)

    Great quote! One that’s especially appropriate today, too. It never ceases to miff me that some folks won’t even TRY to get along. Where did civility go??

    • Virginia says:

      I don’t know where civility has gone, Debbie. It’s super sad to see divisiveness fueled by ignorance doing so much damage in our country today. Blessed with friends and family holding a kaleidoscope of opinions, I’ve always agreed to disagree about some things. That never meant we can’t be friends or talk about issues (intelligently, no mud slinging allowed.) Egads, now people write each other off before getting to know one another. SAD state of affairs. 😦

    Wonderful interview! I’m so glad you posted it. Blessings Virginia!

    • Virginia says:

      Thank you, Cindy. That interview touched my heart. It was also amazing to see over 100 of Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s former law clerks come from around the country to be present during her viewing @ the Supreme Court. What a lady! Blessings to you, too!
