Celebrating the life of supreme court justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Thousands of mourners paid their respects as she lay in repose at the supreme court, and today she will lie in state at the U.S. Capitol, the first woman in U.S. History to do so. Senior national correspondent Terry Moran is at the capitol this morning. Good morning, Terry. Reporter: Good morning, Michael. Today here at the capitol, the final public farewell commemorating and honoring the extraordinary American journey of an extraordinary American woman, Ruth Bader Ginsburg will be as you say, the first woman to lie in state at the capitol. This high honor. Amazing it took so long. Appropriate that it's Ruth Ginsburg. We expect there will be music, her beloved opera, and we're hearing that democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and his wife Jill Biden plan to when she arrives from the supreme court, we expect many members of congress who won't be at that ceremony paying their respects over at the court where she's been for a couple of days lying in repose. It's been a remarkable scene. Ordinary people, thousands of them coming in grief, but also it seemed to me, in gratitude. This outpouring of gratitude for the life of Ruth Bader Ginsburg. She will be laid to rest later next week in Arlington national cemetery, that ground of heroes next to her beloved husband, Marty Ginsburg who died in 2010. The nation paying its final respects publicly today here at the capitol, Michael. Appropriate as you said. Thank you so much, Terry. We'll have special coverage later this morning of the ceremonies honoring justice Ginsburg where she will lie in state.
