Justice Antonin Scalia's Other Legacy--From Focus on the Family

It's impossible to overstate the effect Justice Scalia had on the Supreme Court during his nearly 30-year tenure. He was and is, in a word, irreplaceable. But for all of Justice Scalia's important professional contributions, I want to take a different route and share a few thoughts about his other legacy ... that of his faith and family.

Keep reading to learn a bit about the private life of Justice Scalia. And in the wake of his sudden death, I want to ask you: If these were your last days on earth, what would you hope people might say about you? Please share your thoughts about Justice Scalia's legacy—and how you'd like to be remembered—in the comments section.

Many communities and States are taking proactive measures to protect women and girls. The South Dakota legislature just passed a common sense bill and they are now awaiting the Governor's signature.
