This is pretty great!
Randomly flipping through channels and recorded this video on the day Justic Antonin Scalia died. Was inspired by the responses from both Justices (this particular clip is just from Justice Ginsberg). Posted the following on Facebook:
1) My daughter will be growing up in a world where she can do anything she wants to do, and I will be behind her 100%! It’s really amazing the progress women have made in the past couple of generations. Even though there is still work to be done, I’d like to say “thank you” to all the brave and courageous women who have paved the way!
2) Regardless of your views on abortion, gun control, welfare, race, war, laws, religion, sexuality, global warming, taxes, socioeconomic status, political party, immigration, or whatever other “hot button” issue I’m neglecting to mention, remember that the “other side” is another HUMAN BEING and they also want what’s best for themselves, their family/friends, and their country. It’s easy to imagine your “opponents” as idiots, anti-American, or NAZIS (gasp). It’s not easy to truly listen and UNDERSTAND why someone may have a completely opposite viewpoint (even though we are obviously the smartest, most wise, and goodest person to exist in human history).
We all (myself included!) need to think before we speak or post. The worst offense to me are these silly internet memes we like to share on Facebook – especially as we head into a presidential election. They do not generate true discussion and progress. Instead of demonizing the “other side,” let us start having civil, intelligent, and reasoned discourse on these complex and important issues. Perhaps then we can truly make a better world for ourselves and future generations.
Also, yes, I’m a geek, watching golf and CSPAN late on a Saturday night. Such a party animal! WOOOO!
