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.
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.
Like families across America, our Thanksgiving looks different this year. But I am incredibly grateful for the ability to stay virtually connected to our loved ones so we can get this virus under control.
From @DouglasEmhoff and I, have a safe and happy Thanksgiving.
Earlier today @DouglasEmhoff and I visited @dcck with @chefjoseandres to thank the staff and volunteers for their hard work during this Thanksgiving season to feed those who are hungry. Hurting families must be made a priority and given the relief they deserve.
As many as 1 in 3 women is the victim of gender-based violence at some point in her life, and that rate is even higher for women of color, lesbian and bisexual women, transgender individuals, and other members of vulnerable or underserved communities.
As we head into the holidays, it’s important we are socially distant, but not emotionally distant. Take some time to text a loved one you haven’t seen in a while, check in on your single friends, or write that letter you’ve been putting off. We will get through this together.
As we head into this holiday week, please take every precaution you can to keep yourself, your family, and your community safe. Wear a mask, wash your hands, and practice social distancing. Coronavirus cases are spiking across the country so we must remain vigilant.
