Obviously some terrible news last night about Ruth Bader Ginsburg. She was a pioneer and a hero and I hope we will fight and volunteer and vote and honor her memory.
Today is Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish new year. A lot of people are surprised when they find out I'm half-Jewish because of the whole "Christopher" name thing, but it's true! A classic Jewish name: Christopher Duffy.
I started 5781 off by waking up early, driving to the Pacific, and jumping into the ocean. I'm welcoming a fresh start and a reminder of the potential for change. Traditionally, on Rosh Hashanah you eat apples and honey. Certainly, the past year has been many things, but sweet isn't one of them. So I'm taking a moment to savor a small bit of sweetness and I hope that you have a day and a year where we take time to appreciate the sweetness as we find it. We need it.
