Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg passed away yesterday after a long battle with cancer.
Ginsberg was a pioneer in the field of juris prudence, was the second woman appointed to the US Supreme Court and had a distinguished career that helped break several barriers along the way.
But possibly more important, she was an honorable person and public servant. Her close personal friendship with her ideological opposite on the Supreme Court, Antonin Scalia, serves as an example to us all that you can be friends with and care deeply about people with whom you often disagree strongly. More then ever, her quiet personal example in that regard may be her biggest contribution to her country.
