“BEWARE the Ides of March!”-Shakespeare

Don’t worry everybody, nothing to fear, just love thinking and saying aloud, “Beware the Ides of March” whenever it rolls around. I used to always say it in the classroom and that sparked discussion of Shakespeare, plays, language, playwrighting, etc. 

We have an important birthday of a history-maker this morning, Supreme Court Justice, Ruth Bader Ginsburg who was born on the Ides of March in 1933 in my hometown of Brooklyn, NY. Justice Ginsburg is the 2nd woman to be sworn into the Supreme Court. (Sandra Day O’Connor was the first.)  Justice Ginsburg faced many obstacles both as a woman and as a Jewish woman, but she overcame them with her smarts, tenacity, determination and her commitment to make a difference.
