Day 191 Progress

Hope is found as we look at generations. Ruth Bader Ginsburg explained when asked the question by The Stanford Daily:

The Stanford Daily: Some people would say that those dynamics and those inequalities still very much exist in society, especially among children. Do you think that people in the United States will ever get to equality and if so, when?

Ruth Bader Ginsburg: “I can’t predict when. Will it happen? Yes. Inevitably. I’ve seen such enormous progress in my own lifetime. I think of the opportunities available to me that were not available to my mother. I think of what life is like for my daughter and for my granddaughters. My mother accelerated to graduate from high school at 15 so that she could help the family survive although the eldest son was off at Cornell University. The idea was that the eldest sons would get the education and the rest of the children would not. What is the difference between a bookkeeper in the garment district and a Supreme Court justice? One generation: the difference between the opportunities open to my mother and those open to me.”

One Generation! Hope is the look at the past to keep the forward movement.

It’s up to us to carry on.
