Ruth Bader Ginsburg

We define Visionary Fiction as stories about shifting, changing, and transforming consciousness. If there was a real-life person whose life exemplified these characteristics of Visionary Fiction, it would be the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. 

We’re all familiar with, and have read about her accomplishments, especially regarding women’s rights, universal justice, and fairness for all. She embodies integrity, justice, and compassion, crucial qualities in today’s turbulent world. In addition to the long list of achievements and virtues from her inspirational life, I wanted to share the more personal story fellow Visionary Fiction author, Alissa Lukara, tells about Ruth Bader Ginsberg (note the photo of Ruth Bader Ginsberg wearing an ornate neck piece):

“I wanted to mention that this particular ornate necklace came to RBG from my dear departed friend, Suzanna Solomon. Suzanna had a collection of necklaces and artifacts from when she was a child in South Africa and her mother took Suzanna and her sister to the tribal villages to participate in ceremonies and purchase art. She had put some of the pieces on Etsy to sell and Ruth’s good friend had bought one for Ruth as a birthday present some years ago. Ruth wore it (and other jabots with significance) with her robes in court and at State of the Union gatherings.” ~ Visionary Fiction author Alissa Lukara

                 May Her Memory Be a Revolution.

“Fight for the things that you care about, but do it in a way that will lead others to join you.”  

~ Ruth Bader Ginsburg

“If you want to be a true professional, you will do something outside yourself. Something to repair tears in your community. Something to make life a little better for people less fortunate than you. That’s what I think a meaningful life is—living not for oneself, but for one’s community.” 

~ Ruth Bader Ginsburg

“Reading is the key that opens doors to many good things in life. Reading shaped my dreams, and more reading helped me make my dreams come true.”

~ Ruth Bader Ginsburg
