Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg kept going even with a devastating pancreatic cancer diagnosis. Now she is gone. She was such an example to many. She fought for her beliefs for gender equality early in her career. She had no fear when she gave her dissenting opinion for a Supreme Court decision.
When I think of my own aches and pains and medical difficulties I think of Justice Ginsburg and how strongly she felt about continuing on despite her illness. How I need to do the same.
It reminds me of the many writers who are telling stories of their own adversities and how they overcame them. Stories they share with their readers. Often the readers are helped knowing others have experienced the same or similar experiences.
How fortunate we are as writers to have that gift of storytelling to share.
When you join us for our monthly meetings you will be enlightened by our guests and the discussion that follows after the telling of their own stories.
Please consider joining us each month. Now that we are virtual, members from any part of the state can take advantage of our speakers.
I learn something each time. I’m sure you will, too.
