Our Rock

My wife, Mary, is our family's rock.

Day-in, day-out, she's my center, my sounding board and closest advisor, my deepest source of inspiration, and the love of my life.

Mary is a daily example of how to live the best life we can, in service to others.

Today, I urge all of us across America to embrace that same call to service, and then to take action.

For me, that means ending the gun violence epidemic that's tearing families apart, taking on climate change, passing Medicare for All, fighting attempts to outlaw a woman's right to choose, and closing the wage gaps that plague our society.

Happy Mother's Day to you all.
