RBG at the U.S. Capital
Once again, I was drawn to the TV for something, sobering and historic.
The late justice's casket was escorted by Sergeants at Arms, for a private ceremony in Statuary Hall.
The ceremony was attended by Justice Ginsberg's family and lawmakers... who all looked the same in black clothing and masks. I recognized a few. The Trumps and Pences were not there.
I studied the uniforms... the guests, spaced far apart... and the statues, watching over.
After a while, the quiet space was filled with the voice of mezzo-soprano, Denyce Graves. FBG loved opera and it seemed so fitting for this special ceremony. RBG was a political trailblazer. Now she has become the first woman to lie in state at the U.S. Capital.
I started this complaining list/blog, in May 2016. I posted 200 gripes about my breast cancer and then I was done.
On March 13, 2020, I started venting all over again, when another disease (starting with a C) interfered with my life. Only this time, it was affecting more than me. I ranted for a year, until I got my vaccine in March 2021.
Coronary Artery Disease was the reason I restarted this blog on September 26, 2021. This time it was Don who was dealing with a worry that started with the letter "C".
Coronavirus and Cancer, Coronary Artery Disease! All are evil, but none can totally get me down... if I vent! I usually end up feeling a little more positive at the end of each post!
