The other day I had a chance to visit a COVID-19 vaccination site in Greenbelt, MD. It was great to see so many folks getting their shot. If you need one, sign up today at — and then spread the word so we can keep our families and communities safe.

On International Nurses Day, let’s celebrate the nurses and medical professionals around the world who do so much for so many. And let’s thank them the best way we can: by getting the COVID-19 vaccine and encouraging our friends and family to do the same.

When @POTUS signed the American Rescue Plan, it led to the largest expansion of health care since the Affordable Care Act. Now close to 1 million people have signed up for health care since February. Make sure you're covered at .

Happy Mother’s Day to @MichelleObama and all the moms celebrating today. I hope you take a moment to thank the women who love you in that special way that mothers do, and remember those who are no longer with us.

He was exactly what we needed and more than we ever expected. We will miss him dearly.

He tolerated all the fuss that came with being in the White House, had a big bark but no bite, loved to jump in the pool in the summer, was unflappable with children, lived for scraps around the dinner table, and had great hair.

Today our family lost a true friend and loyal companion. For more than a decade, Bo was a constant, gentle presence in our lives—happy to see us on our good days, our bad days, and everyday in between.

Zahrah’s story is a reminder that the Obama Presidential Center isn’t just about creating a place for people to visit. It’s about investing in the South Side, and giving Chicagoans an opportunity to build a brighter future.

Happy 90th birthday to Willie Mays! If it wasn't for folks like Willie and Jackie Robinson, I might never have made it to the White House. The spirit he played with and the way he carried himself changed the game and people’s attitudes. I’m glad he’s still going strong.

It was because of them I was able to travel to New York City later that week and tell some of the people who had a loved one murdered by al Qaeda on September 11: America has never forgotten your loss. Watch my full conversation with Bill:

This week, Admiral Bill McRaven joined me to reflect on the operation against Osama bin Laden ten years ago.

Looking back, I am grateful to Bill, his team, and the thousands of people across government, whose work made it possible for that mission to succeed.

Bernie Wong was a trailblazer who spent her life advocating for Asian Americans and immigrant communities in Chicago and across the U.S. Her legacy of community leadership inspired me and so many others, and her impact will be felt for generations to come.

Quoted @WhiteHouse

It’s official: Today marks 100 days since President Biden took office. Here’s a look at his historic accomplishments over the last three months:

During President @JoeBiden’s first 100 days, the economy has created more than 1 million jobs, more than 200 million shots have been administered, and we’re on our way to cutting child poverty in half. And as we saw last night, this is just the beginning.

Today, the @USCensusBureau released apportionment data! This means that states know with certainty their congressional representation for the next decade and how many districts they must draw during this year’s redistricting process.

States have just learned how many seats they have in Congress for the next decade. This process is an important step in making sure our maps—and electoral process—better reflect our communities. Get involved in the fight for fair maps with @AllOnTheLine:

The world’s attention must remain on Myanmar, where I’ve been appalled by heartbreaking violence against civilians and inspired by the nationwide movement that represents the voice of the people.

I love wandering into independent bookstores and discovering new voices and new authors. So on Independent Bookstore Day, I wanted to talk with some of the folks who help support authors and nourish our communities.

No challenge poses a greater threat to our planet and to future generations than climate change. I’m proud that the @ObamaFoundation supports young people leading this fight and that the Obama Presidential Center reflects our commitment to sustainability.

Today, a jury did the right thing. But true justice requires much more. Michelle and I send our prayers to the Floyd family, and we stand with all those who are committed to guaranteeing every American the full measure of justice that George and so many others have been denied.

I want to share a new book, Power to the Public, that illustrates how nonprofits and governments can use technology to solve some of the most pressing issues of our time. It includes some good examples and is worth a read for anyone who cares about making change happen.
