(1/4) Watching the terrible news this week about yet another horrific mass shooting, I knew I could not just watch and not try to do something about it. I wondered what else I could say that we haven't said too many times before. Gun deaths are at all time highs and increasing. Image (2/4) The non-suicide gun deaths in the U.S. are the equivalent of 140 airliners crashing with no survivors each year. That's a fatal crash every two or three days, year round, something unthinkable.

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.

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. @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.

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.

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.
