She was larger than life.

She lit up a room every time she entered.

We were captivated by her humble grace and elegance.

She was soft-spoken.

It was her actions that became her megaphone to the world.

She answered the call to justice.

A real-life wonder woman.

She was the Notorious RBG.

The passing of the incomparable Ruth Bader Ginsburg has become just in the latest monumental loss in a year filled with trauma and tragedy.

From her time working at the ACLU to her tenure on Supreme Court, Justice Ginsburg blazed a trail for women in law.

That effect trickled down to the world of sports.

The outpouring of love coming from many prominent athletes was genuine.

The WNBA honored her before the start of the game.

It is also worth noting that in one of her last decisions, she joined the majority opinion in the historic ruling banning workplace discrimination against the LGBTQ+ community.

One of the plaintiffs, in that case, was Gerald Bostock.

He was fired from his job as a social worker because he was a member of a gay softball league in Atlanta.

The love for RBG is real.

The mourning is profound.

Her impact is unmatched.

She will forever be missed but never forgotten.

Rest in Power.
