AT RISE: I Dissent

Tuesday, October 27th 2020

AT RISE: Mom comes into the Distance Learning Environment (homeschool area) wearing her new RBG “I Dissent” shirt, with hair and makeup more put together than usual.

DAUGHTER: Oo-ooh! You look nice! How come you’re all done up?

MOM: [Stops. Looks at her.] Because they just replaced Ruth Bader Ginsberg with someone who’s really going to hurt your future.

DAUGHTER: [Stares. Clenches fists.]

MOM: And doing my hair and makeup is better than crying in bed.

MOM AND DAUGHTER: [Look at each other.]

MOM: It’s important to stand tall.
