On this MLK Day, it is clearer than ever that progress is possible, but that we have many more miles to march before we reach the Beloved Community for which Dr. King lived and died. We should honor him in word & deed with a commitment to justice, equality, service & compassion.

On the 25th anniversary of the Dayton Accords, we remember the lives lost during the conflict, and the courage of those who made peace possible. Today, and over the next 25 years, we commit to investing in a better future for all the people of Bosnia & Herzegovina and the region.
Over the course of his legendary career, Charley Pride moved millions and changed country music forever. I’ll always be grateful for his songs and his personal kindness, and especially for performing at my first White House Christmas tree lighting ceremony 27 years ago this week.
