                  Our nation mourns the loss of Supreme Court Justice
             Ruth Bader Ginsburg, an incredible pioneer in the field of
             law and a champion of justice. She was nominated by then,
             president Bill Clinton in 1993 and served until her death on
             September 18, 2020, it was an incredible 27 years. Justice
             Ginsburg spent her entire career working to eliminate
