Juvenile-onset diabetic (and Nancy Drew lover) Judge Sonia Sotomayor was just nominated by President Obama to the U.S. Supreme Court. Judge Sotomayor was diagnosed with diabetes at age 8 and apparently, fortunately, with a mom as a nurse. She was told she could not be a police officer or private investigator due to her diabetes. She was told to downgrade her aspirations … there’s a downgrade; Second Circuit Court, US District Appellate Court Judge and potentially, Supreme Court Justice.
I do not know any more about her than what I just heard but I obviously, can’t help but say “go girl.” I sure can’t be prouder that one of "us" has ignored the ominous beliefs of juvenile onset diabetes and kicked butt and be nominated to one of the most important positions in the country!!! Go Judge Sotomayor.
