REMINDER: For Indigenous people, #Thanksgiving is a National Day of Mourning—a reminder of the slaughter of millions of their ancestors, the theft of their lands, and the institutional racism that Indigenous communities still face today. pic.twitter.com/p7E50Uwnyy
Earlier today @DouglasEmhoff and I called Talisa, a registered nurse in Chicago, and a few of our nation’s frontline workers to thank them for everything they have done in the fight against COVID-19. We won’t be able to get through this without them. pic.twitter.com/YKdLK0IKi1
To the many @OrlandoFireDept and @OrlandoPolice first responders and dispatchers, and the frontline workers who are on the job today keeping our city safe: happy Thanksgiving! We’re thankful for your service to our community.
Today I'm thinking about all the families who have an empty seat at Thanksgiving this year after losing a loved one, our nation’s frontline workers who are spending the day saving lives, and those who are serving overseas. Each and every one of you is in our hearts.
