Hank Aaron was one of the best baseball players we’ve ever seen and one of the strongest people I’ve ever met. Michelle and I send our thoughts and prayers to the Aaron family and everyone who was inspired by this unassuming man and his towering example.

This is a time for boldness and President Biden is already delivering.

By rejoining the Paris climate accords on day one, he declared loudly and clearly that the U.S. will once again lead the fight against climate change.

And this is only the beginning.

Quoted @POTUS

The time to move forward is now.

Today was a good day.

And it was only possible because of you. Because you made calls. Because you marched. Because you wore your masks and voted like never before.

For four years, you defended our democracy with everything you had—and now, our country can enter a new day.

If anyone had a right to question whether our democracy was worth redeeming, it was Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Because in the face of billy clubs and lynchings, poll taxes and literacy tests, he never gave in to violence, never waved a traitorous flag or gave up on our country.

My friend John Lewis is surely smiling down on his beloved Georgia this morning, as people across the state carried forward the baton that he and so many others passed down to them.

In case you missed literally every other social media I own, today I voted for @ossoff @ReverendWarnock because we need a better future and we have the chance to start that here in Georgia - don’t forget that the fight doesn’t end with the election, we’ve got a lot of work to do!

Thanks for voting, Emily—and thanks even more for committing to stay involved after today. Your state and your country need you!
