middle of the road

Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, the first woman to serve on the Supreme Court, is retiring.

I was too young to remember when she was appointed, but I became fascinated by her story soon after I learned to read, and devoured multiple children's biographies about her life. Later on, I admired her stances on abortion, states' rights, and affirmative action.

I hope the president appoints someone worthy of her seat.
