Photo Flick Nr 35: Honoring Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Photo by Tara Ray Wright

As we say goodbye to RBG, we have many things to remember her for doing for the benefit of Americans and the rest of the world. She was a giant. She was outspoken. She was a rockstar and a role model. She brought equality and justice, as well as peace in her time. But she was a super hero, as seen in this mural.

May she have a face on Mount Rushmore or a huge monument honoring her and thanking her for her three decades service. She has a special place in the history books for her work. Many thanks and we will honor your wishes whatever you had left to achieve. ❤️🌻🌅

The United States was an experiment in democracy unlike anything the world had ever seen, turning away from government dominated by elites and hoping that the common man could rule himself. If this experiment had any…

Random Memories of Germany- Our Favorite Castles

Herrenchiemsee-Part 2 SUNDAY MEMORIES Judy Wills I mentioned earlier that Herrenchiemsee was “unfinished” at Ludwig’s death.  But the brochure states: “It would be wrong to call Herrenchiemsee Palace ‘unfinished’ in the usual sense of the word; even in the construction schedule of 1878, no other rooms are planned for the interior than those which we see […]

US Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg died last night after battling cancer and other ailments in the past 20 years. She was 87 years old. Ginsburg was nominated by President Bill Clinton in 1994 and became a key figure in the Courts. Especially in the last decade, many younger people had looked up to her because of her character and demeanor, which made her one of the most well-liked and well-known figures in the States.

This caracature in dedicated in her memory. May she rest in peace.
