Opinion: Judge Barrett working bravely to make country better
Amy Barrett
Amy Coney Barrett

I want to applaud Judge Amy Coney Barrett for being brave enough to do what she is doing. And I want to applaud her beautiful family for standing behind her. She must love you all very much to try to do what she can to make this country a better, safer place for you to grow up in. 

I am praying for Amy Coney Barrett and for President Donald Trump and I invite others to join me.
