Stories like this are a reminder of our duty, as a country and as Americans, to support every veteran—not only in words, but in deed. To every veteran out there, thank you. We’re forever in your debt.

This Veterans Day, here’s a moving portrait of the extraordinary resilience of my friend Cory Remsburg, an Army Ranger I’ve come to know over the years. It’s an honest tribute to all those wounded warriors and their families who give so much to our country nymag.com/intelligencer/2019/1

No one says it better than @MichelleObama@twitter.com — the Obama Presidential Center coming to the South Side isn't for us, it's for the community and the next generation of leaders. twitter.com/obamafoundation/st

Proud of all the Americans who showed up to vote yesterday, electing a set of hopeful, forward-thinking leaders primed to protect Medicaid, draw fair voting maps, and reduce gun violence. A great night for our country—one that’ll leave a lasting legacy.

Proud to endorse an outstanding group of Virginia Democrats in Tuesday’s election—candidates who’ll not only advance the causes of equality, justice, and decency, but help ensure that the next decade of voting maps are drawn fairly. That’s good policy—and good for our politics.

Today’s the first day of open enrollment on HealthCare.gov , and high-quality coverage might be more affordable than you think. Nearly 9 in 10 HealthCare.gov customers qualify for financial help—so if you or someone you know needs insurance, today.

Congrats to the World Champion @Nationals@twitter.com and their fans! A great group that always showed up when it counted and was never afraid to show a little joy: dancing in the dugout, laughing, believing, and always sticking together. A true team with a spirit that’d do us all well.

Watch live: @BarackObama@twitter.com is about to take the stage at the . Tune in now at obama.org for his conversation with @YaraShahidi@twitter.com and young leaders from around the world.

Take a tour with @BarackObama@twitter.com through the future Obama Presidential Center on Chicago’s South Side.

Glad to be back in Chicago for the @ObamaFoundation@twitter.com Summit. It’s where I first learned to organize—and where I met @MichelleObama@twitter.com . We all have places that define us, and at the Summit, we’ll be exploring the meaning behind them—tune in tomorrow at obama.org . twitter.com/obamafoundation/st

. @SamanthaJPower@twitter.com is a Pulitzer winner, an incredible writer, and a great friend. Her memoir, The Education of an Idealist, grapples with the balance between idealism, pragmatism, advocacy, and governance. It's a must-read for anyone who cares about our role in a changing world.

Michelle and I are heartbroken over the passing of our friend, Elijah Cummings. May his example inspire more Americans to pick up the baton and carry it forward in a manner worthy of his service.

I was proud to work with Justin Trudeau as President. He's a hard-working, effective leader who takes on big issues like climate change. The world needs his progressive leadership now, and I hope our neighbors to the north support him for another term.

In December, Michelle and I will head to Malaysia for the first @ObamaFoundation@twitter.com Leaders: Asia-Pacific gathering. The region plays an important role in my own story, and today, it’s home to a generation of rising leaders ready to create a better world. We can’t wait to join them.

Yesterday, marathoner Eliud Kipchoge became the first ever to break two hours. Today in Chicago, Brigid Kosgei set a new women’s world record. Staggering achievements on their own, they’re also remarkable examples of humanity’s ability to endure—and keep raising the bar.

Congrats to the @WashMystics@twitter.com on a gutsy, first-ever championship! A great team performance when it counted. If folks aren’t careful, this title thing might become a habit in DC.

Here’s an interesting read—a reminder that behind every opinion lies a human being with real experiences and a story to tell. Sometimes we’ll agree and sometimes we won’t, but if we want our democracy work, listening to each other isn’t optional. nytimes.com/interactive/2019/1

As President, I leaned on @AmbassadorRice@twitter.com ’s experience, expertise, and willingness to tell me what I needed to hear. In her memoir, Tough Love, you’ll see why. It’s a tribute to American leadership—and a unifying call for us to do our part to protect it. I hope you’ll read it.

Like the Beatles said: It’s getting better all the time. Thanks, babe, for 27 amazing years!
