Salman Rushdie has lived his life courageously and refused to let intimidation silence him, his art, and what he stands for. I am keeping him in my thoughts and praying for his recovery.

We know the effects of a nuclear disaster are profound. Operations in and around the Zaporizhzhia plant continue to escalate. I urge Russia to suspend its operations immediately—for the sake of Ukrainians, their neighbors including Russians, and the future of all our people. 2/2

We cannot let Zaporizhzhia become the next Chernobyl.

In 1986, Chernobyl's calamitous nuclear meltdown contaminated 100,000 sq km in three countries, forced the evacuation of 350,000 people, and left a zone around the plant that will remain uninhabitable for 20,000 years. 1/2

The House’s passage yesterday of the Assault Weapons Ban Act of 2022 is an important step to reduce mass shootings and make America safer for all. 1/4

Too many people who are suffering do so in silence or without the support or care they need. If you or someone you know needs help dealing with a suicidal, mental health, or substance-use crisis -- call tel:988 (@988Lifeline) right away.

On International Rock N Roll Day, I'm listening to and remembering one of the greatest of all time, Ronnie Hawkins. There will never be anyone else quite like The Hawk!
