Stevie Nicks has shared a warm tribute to the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who passed away from cancer on Friday. Stevie called Ginsburg a hero, a political rock star who fought for all women. A leading woman herself, Stevie ended her tribute by inducting Ginsburg into the “Rock and Roll Hall of Fame of Life.”
Read Stevie’s journal entry below.
She was my hero. She fought for me, and all women. I feel today very much like I felt on the night my own mother died. I feel like someone punched me in the stomach. My tears have not stopped since a friend tip toed into my room and said “Stevie, Ruth died.” (No need for a last name…)
I so believed that she would live for a few more years. I wanted to meet her. I wanted to hold her hand and give her a huge hug and thank her for all she had done for women, and for all she would continue to do.
If I lived in Washington D.C., I would be standing on the steps of the Supreme Court with as many long-stemmed red roses as I could hold~ and a candle. I will light that white candle here, at my house, right now~ and I will go find the most beautiful rose in my back yard~
It is my great regret that I did not make the effort to go and try to meet her. As with all legends, you think they will live forever, so you will get there in time.
I did not get to meet her. I did not get to stand in her grace. What a loss…
She was a political rock star~
