1/6 This Saturday, January 15, will mark 13 years since #Flight1549 changed the lives of passengers, crew members and first responders forever.
2/6 Lorrie and I have spent time reflecting not only on that day and how it affected our family, but also the many stories we’ve heard over the years from others who recall the events of that day.
3/6 We recently met a woman who shared with us how she witnessed the entire event, and she remembers that her husband, who worked for Goldman Sachs at the time, had to evacuate his building in case this event was another 9/11.
4/6 It was the first time we had ever heard that some buildings near the #Hudson River and surrounding areas had been evacuated that day. It's astonishing to think of how many stories have yet to be heard.
5/6 As we reflect this year, Lorrie & I would love to hear from those who were affected in any way - what memories you have & the story you took with you from your experience. Please share in the comments below. I will be resharing these stories on Instagram throughout the week.
6/6 I would also like to sincerely thank those who have shared their experiences with us so far; they are often so touching and moving and we are continually amazed by them.

1/4 The anger and division in our society have risen to extreme levels and have threatened the safety and security of way too many airline flights. nyti.ms/3a4CDPS @nytimes @NYTimesCramer
2/4 Dangerous and abusive behavior and violence put at risk every soul on board, and even if you aren't physically threatened, it makes for a hellacious experience, when many are already nervous about flying, even before #COVID19.
3/4 Flight attendants, who are there for your safety, have been put even more on the front lines since the 9/11 terror attacks, and now must deal with extreme politically-motivated abuse.

1/4 Normally this holiday week, we would be getting ready to celebrate #Thanksgiving together. But there hasn’t been anything normal about this year.
2/4 I almost didn't know where to start our message this year, with #COVID, many who lost loved ones, jobs, homes, everything; the ongoing struggle for racial justice, and the divisions in our country; extreme wildfires, hurricanes and flooding. Our thoughts are with all of you.
3/4 Our family is doing our part to help #stopthespread. It’s the least we can do. Though we'll miss the board games, laughter & closeness this year, we are grateful for the memories in these photos, & look forward to a time when we can all be together again to make more of them. ImageImageImage

1/9 I am a veteran. I volunteered for military service during wartime. So did my father. His generation saved the world from fascism.
2/9 In our travels, my wife Lorrie and I have always made it a point to visit military bases, hospitals and cemeteries, to meet and honor those who serve and have served our nation.
3/9 I have long known that serving a cause greater than oneself is the highest calling, whether in the military or in civilian life. And I have always tried to be a voice of reason and to speak in a measured way.
