Heads up everyone. President Obama is on Jimmy Fallon tonight. Watch to see if he mentions anything about the "War on Women."  As you know, that is the sound bite I have been using to describe this administration's treatment of women in the USDA and Forest Service and advised President Obama of it in my 3/31/12 letter. Also, please let me know if you hear the administration use this language in a manner that we can discuss in DC next month...lesa

"We Must Tell Our Children"

Yesterday, President Obama spoke at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum about honoring the pledge of "never again" by making sure we are doing everything we can to prevent and end atrocities and save lives.

After being introduced by Professor Elie Wiesel, a Holocaust survivor, the President spoke of the importance of telling our children -- and all future generations -- about the Holocaust:

We must tell our children. But more than that, we must teach them. Because remembrance without resolve is a hollow gesture. Awareness without action changes nothing. In this sense, "never again" is a challenge to us all -- to pause and to look within.
