Known for her legal fight for women’s rights in the 1970s, Ginsburg served 27 years as a Supreme Court Justice. Her death will set in motion a nasty and tumultuous political battle over who will succeed her, as the presidential election nears.

 

Ginsburg’s death gives Republicans the chance to tighten their grip on the court with another Trump appointment that would give conservatives a 6-to-3 majority meaning that even a defection on the right would leave conservatives with enough votes to prevail in the Obamacare case, Dreamers and many other cases that will be brought to the supreme court this period.

But in truth, I am broken and scattered to see what my country has become. We are tired and it’s becoming one time too many, how is it wrong to demand for our right/ expectations and be killed at it. How?

 

We wont forget this day – 20.10.2020 in a long time. May the souls of th fallen heros Rest In Peace!
