I Pledge To Discharge The Responsibilities Of This
job to the very best of my ability. I love the United States and I love the United States Constitution. I am truly I am. Truly humbled by the prospect of serving on the Supreme Court should I be confirmed I will be mindful of who came before me. The flag of the United States is still flying at half-staff in memory of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg to mark the end of a great American life.
Justice Ginsburg Began Her Career At A
time when women were not welcome in the legal profession, but she not only broke glass ceilings. She smashed them for that she has won the admiration of women across the country and indeed all over the world. She was a woman of enormous talent and consequence and her life of public service serves as an example to us all particularly poignant to me was her long and deep friendship with Justice Antonin Scalia. My own mentor Justices Scalia and Ginsburg disagreed fiercely in print without rancor in person their ability to. A warm and rich friendship, despite their differences even inspired an opera.
These Two Great Americans Demonstrated That Arguments
even about matters of great consequence need not destroy affection in both my personal and professional relationships. I strive to meet that standard I was lucky enough to clerk for Justice Scalia and given his incalculable influence on my life. I am very moved to have members of the Scalia family here today, including his dear wife Maureen. I clerked for Justice Scalia more than 20 years ago, but the lessons I learned still resonate his judicial philosophy is mine too a judge must apply the law as written judges are not policy makers and they must be resolute and setting aside any policy views they might hold. The president has asked me to become the ninth justice and as it happens.

My family Our family includes me my husband, Jesse, Emma Vivian, Tess Gent, Peter, Liam Juliet and Benjamin Vivian and John Peter as the president said were born in Haiti, and they came to us five years apart when they were very young and the most revealing fact about Benjamin our youngest is that his brothers and sisters unreservedly identify him as their favorite sibling. Our children obviously make our life very full while I am a judge. I’m better known back home as a room parent Carpool driver and birthday party planner. When schools went remote last spring I tried on another hat.
Jessie And I Became Co-Principals Of
the Barrett e-learning academy and yes the list of enrolled students was a very long one. Our children are my greatest joy. Even though they deprive me of any reasonable amount of sleep. I couldn’t manage this very full life. unwavering support of my husband Jesse at the start of our marriage.
I Imagine That We Would Run
our household as partners as it has turned out. Jesse does far more than his share of the work to my chagrin. I learned at dinner recently that my children consider him to be the better cook for 21 years. Jesse has asked me every single morning what he can do for me that day and though I almost always say nothing. He still finds ways to take things off my plate and that’s not because he has a lot of free time.
