Some notable Americans have left a lasting impression on my immigrant soul, while the others have just faded into the nothingness of faint memories. I remember the justness, kindness, and integrity of Americans from all walks of life. Some I have met in person, while the others, I will probably never meet. But their decisions have continued to influence our society in general and me on a very personal level. Such was the impact of the Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States- her name is Ruth Bader Ginsburg and she is no more. However, the decisions and opinion pieces that she has written will continue to have their effects on our society for the longest. Here is her obituary in Guardian Newspaper.
She passed away on the eve of Rosh Hashanah, 5780.
I celebrate her life by sharing some of the books about her that we have in our collections.
