Justice Sandra Day O’Connor was a trailblazer.

As the first woman to serve on the Supreme Court of the United States, Justice O’Connor was guided by a deep respect for the rule of law. Opinions she authored will continue to shape our nation for decades to come.

As an associate justice of the Supreme Court, as a state senator, and as a proud daughter of Arizona, Justice O’Connor dedicated her life to public service. A champion of civics education, Justice O’Connor helped countless young Americans better understand the nature and importance of our democracy.

I first met Justice O’Connor years ago. Like so many who knew her, I will always remember her kindness, intelligence, and deep love for our country.

Today, Doug and I send our prayers to Justice O’Connor’s family.
