In the wake of the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a crowd gathered to pay their respects at the steps of the Supreme Court.
What appeared to be hundreds of people gathered on Friday evening after the news broke. Some brought candles. Others left arrangements of roses and sunflowers on the steps. Some sang “Amazing Grace” and “America the Beautiful.”
One sign left read, “Women belong in all places where decisions are made,” quoting the late justice.
Ginsburg died due to complications related to her battle with cancer.
“Our nation has lost a justice of historic stature,” Chief Justice John Roberts said in a statement. “We at the Supreme Court have lost a cherished colleague. Today we mourn, but with confidence that future generations will remember Ruth Bader Ginsburg as we knew her — a tired and resolute champion of justice.”
