On September 18th, 2020, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg passed away.  While I knew a bit about her and her legacy, I didn't know that much and thus, the outpouring of positive thoughts about her online was surprising to me.  Surprising in a good way, as it moved me to read up more on her life as a judge.  Justice Ginsburg was a shining light for many as she was an advocate for gender equality, and women's rights.
