You have spent your life trying to do good for the people. You applied your exceptional mind to your chosen career. You worked long and hard,
balancing a family, a career, and social involvement. You did all this with your head high and your convictions intact. There was a time in the United
States of America when all that would be applauded. But that day is not today.
You are raising 7 children, 2 of whom are not your own. They seem to be happy and healthy. Those 2 are not even of the same skin color as you, but
they stood there as equals with their brothers and sisters. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. would be proud of you. You judge based on character, not by
the color of skin. You are the fulfillment of a great man's dream. At one time in the United States of America, that would have been noble and
respected. But that day is not today.
Today, you reached the pinnacle of all those yeas of hard study and work. I watched you stand proudly behind that podium as the President of the
United States of America officially nominated you to sit with the other revered Justices on the United States Supreme Court. I heard you pay tribute
to two of them who are sadly no longer with us: Justice Antonin Scalia, your mentor, and Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg, your forerunner. They were close
friends with fierce political differences, and I was moved by your pledge to continue in their footsteps.
But today you also entered a battleground. You stepped from relative obscurity as an Appellate Court Judge into the limelight of hatred that has
become US politics. You are now a target. Your life and your accomplishments are meaningless. Your pledges to uphold the Constitution will be ignored,
or worse, twisted into something entirely different. Every word you have ever uttered will be dissected, analyzed, scrutinized, demonized, and used to
make you out to be the Devil incarnate. Your actions of charity and compassion will be worthless things only done for a personal benefit, despite them
done when no personal benefit could be foreseen. In short, you will be attacked as harshly and as viciously as anyone has ever been attacked. Your
husband and your children will also be fair game for those who seek to not just remove this well-deserved honor from you, but want to destroy you
every way possible... you, your family, your career, and your very soul.
You do not deserve what is to come. You deserve to be investigated and questioned to ensure your suitability for the job. You have had that happen
once before,and even then certain of those questioning you attacked your faith. This time will be worse, much worse. The ire is so strong that these
same people took Brett Kavanaugh before you to the brink of desperation, then laughed as he struggled to deal with the immeasurable damage they had
caused him and those he loved. That is the caliber of those who are even now practicing their lies and sharpening their swords against you.
You do not seem to be naive; I am sure you expect the hearings to be difficult. However, I doubt that any reasonable person can fully imagine the
utter destruction these people are ready to unleash. I pray that you will be strengthened enough to withstand the avalanch of hate that is to come.
You have a hard enough task before you: keeper of the US Constitution, the document envied around the world that allowed this country to grow from
rag-tag colonists desperately trying to survive a new world devoid of all the latest advantages of civilization to the greatest military, economic,
and technological superpower the world has ever known in a mere 200 years. You will be the ultimate check and balance on all the rest of the
government. The fate of the freedom of the American people will be in your hands as you listen to cases and write opinions that, for all purposes,
carry the weight of law. It is an awesome power and an awesome responsibility that I pray you will take as seriously as it deserves to be taken.
You will be attacked because there are those who do not want you to be a check and balance on them. Your attackers are partisan, and wish to relegate
that great Constitution to a weapon they can use against their political rivals while they remake this great nation into some perverted vision of a
dysfunctional fantasy they see as "Utopia." They want to destroy everything you stand for and everything you believe in. They want to turn the
American people from a proud, capable, independent lot of diversity into a segregated, cowering group of serfs that exist only to please them and at
their pleasure. They will stop at nothing to achieve this... they will slander, defame, lie, accuse, and yes, even kill to achieve their goals. Give
them no quarter; stand firm in your convictions and know that through it all, God is with you.
As am I. As are the silent majority who see your attackers for who and what they are. You are not alone, for when they attack you, they attack us.
Godspeed and congratulations.
