Remarks by the President at 9/11 Memorial

The Pentagon

9:45 A.M. EDT

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Good morning. Scripture tells us, “We count as blessed those who have persevered.”

Secretary Hagel, General Dempsey, members of our Armed Forces, and, most of all, the survivors of that September day and the families of those we lost –- Michelle and I are humbled to be with you once again.

It has now been 13 years. Thirteen years since the peace of an American morning was broken. Thirteen years since nearly 3,000 beautiful lives were taken from us, including 125 men and women serving here at the Pentagon. Thirteen years of moments they would have shared with us. Thirteen years of memories they would have made.

Here, once more, we pray for the souls of those we remember, for you, their families, who love them forever, and for a nation that has been inspired by your example — your determination to carry on, your resolve to live lives worthy of their memories.

As Americans, we draw strength from you. For your love is the ultimate rebuke to the hatred of those who attacked us that bright, blue morning. They sought to do more than bring down buildings or murder our people. They sought to break our spirit and to prove to the world that their power to destroy was greater than our power to persevere and to build. But you, and America, proved them wrong.

America endures in the strength of your families who, through your anguish, kept living. You have kept alive a love that no act of terror can ever extinguish. You, their sons and daughters, are growing into extraordinary young men and women they knew you could be. By your shining example, your families have turned this day into something that those who attacked us could never abide, and that is a tribute of hope over fear, and love over hate.

America endures in the tenacity of our survivors. After grievous wounds, you learned to walk again and stand again. After terrible burns, you smiled once more. For you, for our nation, these have been difficult years. But by your presence here today, in the lives of service that you have led, you embody the truth that no matter what comes our way, America will always come out stronger.

America endures in the dedication of those who keep us safe. The firefighter, the officer, the EMT who carries the memory of a fallen partner as they report to work each and every day, prepared to make the same sacrifice for us all. Because of these men and women, Americans now work in a gleaming Freedom Tower. We visit our great cities, we fill our stadiums and cheer for our teams. We carry on, because, as Americans, we do not give in to fear — ever.

America endures in the courage of the men and women who serve under our flag. Over more than a decade of war, this 9/11 Generation has answered our country’s call, and three months from now, our combat mission in Afghanistan will come to an end. Today, we honor all who have made the ultimate sacrifice these 13 years, more than 6,800 American patriots. And we give thanks to those who serve in harm’s way to keep our country safe and meet the threats of our time.

America endures in that perennial optimism that defines us as a people. Beginning tomorrow, there will be teenagers –- young adults –- who were born after 9/11. It’s remarkable. And while these young Americans did not know the horrors of that day, their lives have been shaped by all the days since — a time that has brought us pain, but also taught us endurance and strength; a time of rebuilding, of resilience, and of renewal. What gives us hope –- what gives me hope -– is that it is these young Americans who will shape all the days to come.

Thirteen years after small and hateful minds conspired to break us, America stands tall and America stands proud. And guided by the values that sustain us, we will only grow stronger. Generations from now, Americans will still fill our parks, our stadiums, our cities. Generations from now, Americans will still build towers that reach toward the heavens; still serve in embassies that stand for freedom around the world; still wear the uniform and give meaning to those words written two centuries ago: Land of the free. Home of the Brave. Generations from now, no matter the trial, no matter the challenge, America will always be America.

“We count as blessed those who have persevered.”

May God bless your families, who continue to inspire us all. May God bless our Armed Forces and all who serve to keep us safe. And may God continue to bless the United States of America.
END

President Obama, Others Dedicate 9/11 Museum In Solemn Ceremony

Obama at 9/11 Museum: Terrorism Can’t Break Us

President Barack Obama, dignitaries, Sept. 11 survivors, rescuers and victims’ relatives marked the opening of the 9/11 museum in a solemn dedication ceremony on Thursday.

Obama called the National September 11 Memorial Museum as “a sacred place of healing and of hope” that captures both the story and the spirit of heroism and helping others that followed the attacks.

“It’s an honor to join in your memories, to recall and to reflect, but above all to reaffirm the true spirit of 9/11 — love, compassion, sacrifice — and to enshrine it forever in the heart of our nation,” he told an audience of victims’ relatives, survivors, and rescuers at the ground zero museum’s dedication ceremony.

“Like the great wall and bedrock that embrace us today, nothing can ever break us. Nothing can change who we are as Americans.”

The president praised the men and women who helped save lives in the attack, including those who gave their lives in the effort.

“Those we lost live on in us,” Obama said. “In the families who love them still, the friends who remember them always and in a nation that will honor them now and forever.”

Former mayor Michael Bloomberg called the museum “a place we come to remember those who died and to honor acts of courage and compassion.”

“We are here today to help dedicate a great museum, one that rises out of the bedrock of our city, our history and our hearts,” Bloomberg said before introducing Obama at the dedication ceremony. “In the years to come, the 9/11 memorial museum will take its place alongside the fields of Gettysburg, the waters of Pearl Harbor and the Vietnam Veterans Memorial as a sacred marker of our past and as a solemn gathering place.”

The museum, which commemorates the 2001 terrorist attack as well as the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, opens to the public on May 21.

Before the ceremony, Obama walked quietly through an expansive hall with Bloomberg.First lady Michelle Obama, former President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton following behind them.

Reflections from dignitaries, including New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, Mayor Bill de Blasio and former Mayor Rudy Giuliani, were interspersed with the voices of everyday people caught up in Sept. 11.

Retired Fire Department Lt. Mickey Cross described being trapped for hours in the wreckage of the north tower and then joining the recovery effort after being rescued.

“There was a real sense of caring for each other,” he said.

Kayla Bergeron remembered walking down 68 flights of stairs in the north tower, amid confusion and fear that there was no way out. Her final steps to safety were on an outdoor stairway, now in the museum as the “survivors’ stairs.”

“Today, when I think about those stairs, what they represent to me is resiliency,” she said.

Thirteen years after the Twin Towers fell, the raw emotion is still palpable among those who lived through it.

“It was like this dream you thought you were going to wake up from,” Midtown resident Peter Bricken said.

“It’s like being in a sacred place, like a tomb,” Washington Heights resident Roman Kopinads said. “So many people lost their lives.”

The brand new Sept. 11 museum opened Thursday, May 15th, 2014 and was praised as “a sacred place of healing and of hope” that captures both the story and the spirit of heroism and helpfulness that followed the attacks. This is a video slide show of the dedication ceremony.

The museum and memorial plaza above, which opened in 2011, were built for $700 million in donations and tax dollars.

By turns chilling and heartbreaking, the ground zero museum leads people on an unsettling journey through the terrorist attacks, with forays into their lead up and legacy.

The sights and sounds are all-encompassing and at times, overwhelming.

“Walking through this museum can be difficult at times, but it is impossible to leave without feeling inspired,” Bloomberg said Thursday.

There are scenes of horror, including videos of the skyscrapers collapsing and people falling from them. But there also are symbols of heroism, ranging from damaged fire trucks to the wristwatch of one of the airline passengers who confronted the hijackers.

Visitors start in an airy pavilion where the rusted tops of two of the World Trade Center’s trident-shaped columns shoot upward. From there, museumgoers descend stairs and ramps, passing through a dark corridor filled with the voices of people remembering the day and past the battered “survivors’ staircase” that hundreds used to escape the burning towers.

At the base level, 70 feet below ground, amid remnants of the skyscrapers’ foundations, there are such artifacts as a mangled piece of the antenna from atop the trade center and a fire truck with its cab shorn off.

Then, galleries plunge visitors into the chaos of Sept. 11: fragments of planes, a set of keys to the trade center, a teddy bear left at the impromptu memorials that arose after the attacks, the dust-covered shoes of those who fled the skyscrapers’ collapse, emergency radio transmissions and office workers calling loved ones, even a recording of an astronaut solemnly describing the smoke plume from the International Space Station.

Sprinkled in are snippets about the 19 hijackers, including photos of them on an inconspicuous panel.

The unidentified human remains of more than 1,000 people will also be housed in an underground repository within the museum.

But several families gathered outside the memorial gates Wednesday night to say their relatives should not be buried inside a museum that costs $24 to enter.

“We want those remains up on the plaza, a nice memorial where they can continue DNA testing. They don’t belong in an admission charging museum,” said Jim Riches, whose firefighter son was killed in the attack.

Other victims’ families see it as a fitting resting place.

After Thursday’s dedication, the museum will be open for six days around-the-clock to Sept. 11 survivors, victims’ relatives, first responders and lower Manhattan residents.

When the museum opens to the public May 21, the $24 admission will be waived for all visitors, but advance reservations are required.

There will be no admission charge for relatives of Sept. 11 victims or for rescue and recovery workers. Children age 6 and younger will get in free. Admission will be free for everyone on Tuesdays from 5 p.m. and 8 p.m.

The museum’s regular hours will be 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily.

Officials say advanced reservations for tickets can be booked at 911memorial.org.

Op-Ed by President Obama on the White House Summit on Working Families

In an op-ed published on the Huffington Post, President Obama writes about the importance of today’s White House Summit on Working Families and his commitment to creating a 21st century workplace that works for all Americans.

 

The following op-ed by President Obama appeared on the Huffington Post.

 

Family-Friendly Workplace Policies Are Not Frills — They’re Basic Needs

 

Family-Friendly Workplace Policies Are Not Frills — They’re Basic Needs

 

Bq1VO4FIQAAfPBF

 

As President, my top priority is rebuilding an economy where everybody who works hard has the chance to get ahead.

 

That’s the subject of the first White House Summit on Working Families, which is taking place today. We’re bringing together business leaders and workers to talk about the challenges that working parents face every day and how we can address them.

 

Take flexibility — the ability to take a few hours off for a school play or to work from home when your kid is sick. Most workers want it, but not enough of them have it — even though studies show that flexibility makes workers happier and helps companies lower turnover and raise productivity.

 

Take paid family leave. Many jobs don’t offer adequate leave to care for a new baby or an ailing parent, so workers can’t afford to be there when their families need them the most. And the United States is the only developed country in the world without paid maternity leave.

 

2014-06-23t180652z_264714844_gm1ea6o05s201_rtrmadp_3_usa-obama-labor

 

Take childcare. Most working families I know can’t afford thousands a year for childcare, but often, that’s what it costs. I recently got a letter from a woman in Minnesota whose kids’ preschool is so expensive it costs more every month than her mortgage.

 

And take the minimum wage. Nearly 28 million Americans would benefit if we raised the minimum wage to $10.10. And we’re not just talking about young people on their first job — the average worker who would benefit from an increase is 35 years old. Many have kids. And a majority are women. Right now, many full-time minimum-wage workers aren’t even making enough to keep their kids out of poverty.

 

Family leave, childcare, flexibility and a decent wage aren’t frills. They’re basic needs. They shouldn’t be bonuses — they should be the bottom line.

 

Parents who work full-time should earn enough to pay the bills and go to work every day knowing that their kids are in good hands. Workers who give their all should know that if they need some flexibility, they can have it — because their employers understand that it’s hard to be productive when you’ve got a sick kid at home or a childcare crisis. And talented, hard-working people should be able to say yes to a great new opportunity without worrying that their families will pay the price. Nearly half of all working parents surveyed say they’ve chosen to turn down a job not because they didn’t want it, but because it would be too hard on their families. When that many members of our workforce are forced to choose between a job and their family, something’s wrong.

 

Some businesses are realizing that family-friendly policies are a good business practice, because they help build loyalty and inspire workers to go the extra mile. JetBlue offers a flexible work-from-home plan for its customer-service representatives. Google increased its paid parental leave to five months — and the rate of women leaving the company decreased by half. Cisco lets their employees telecommute as needed, which they estimate saves them over $275 million every year.

 

And there’s a bigger economic case here, too. The strength of our economy rests on whether we’re getting the most out of all of our nation’s talent — whether we’re making it possible for all our citizens to contribute to our growth and prosperity. That’s the key to staying competitive in the global economy. Right now, we’re leaving too many people on the sidelines who have the desire and the capacity to work, but are held back by one obstacle or another. It’s our job to remove those obstacles. That’s what supporting working families is all about.

 

States are getting on board, too. California, Rhode Island and New Jersey give workers paid family leave. Connecticut offers paid sick days. So does New York City. Since I asked Congress to raise the minimum wage last year, 13 states have taken steps to raise it on their own.

 

But all Americans should get to benefit from these policies. That’s why we need to see some action here in Washington.

 

2014-06-23t181137z_328977805_gm1ea6o05z501_rtrmadp_3_usa-obama-labor

 

I’ll work with anyone — Democrats or Republicans — to increase opportunity for American workers. But in this year of action, whenever I can act on my own, I will.

 

Today, I’ll sign a Presidential Memorandum directing every agency in the federal government to expand access to flexible work schedules, and giving employees the right to request them.

 

I’m calling on Congress to pass the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act, because too many pregnant workers are forced to choose between their health and their job. They can get fired for taking too many bathroom breaks, or forced on unpaid leave just for being pregnant. It’s inhumane, and it needs to stop.

 

And to help parents trying to get ahead, I’m directing my Secretary of Labor to invest $25 million in helping people who want to enroll in job-training programs, but don’t currently have access to the childcare they need to do it.

 

I take this personally — as the son and grandson of some strong women who worked hard to support my sister and me; as the husband of a brilliant woman who struggled to balance work and raising our young ladies when my job often kept me away; and as the father of two beautiful girls, whom I want to be there for as much as I possibly can — and whom I hope will be able to have families and careers of their own one day.

 

We know from our history that our country does better when everybody participates; when everyone’s talents are put to use; when we all have a fair shot. That’s the America I believe in. That’s the America I’ll keep fighting for every day.

Gym Holmes Place Premium Hilton Marriott Hotel. Dumbbell exercises biceps and pecs. One would like to say a day, like every day. But suddenly the room comes unexpected guest: Barack Obama and begins to practice with other fans of sporty silhouette. One of the witnesses has posted on Facebook photos of practicing U.S. president.

 

Barack Obama’s visit to the gym so you really should not be surprising – the U.S. media writes about him as “the most athletic president of the USA.”Almost 53-year-old leader is in great shape, often stresses that the exercise 6 times a week. And as you can see, on the road no exceptions. Surprising it may just be that the president did not ask to reserve the gym for himself and practicing with others. On the other hand – we’re talking about the president, who can provide entertaining interviews in which he admits that bed linen and bed and eats healthily . Oh and do not forget the phenomenal interview with Zack Galifianakis Obama . Which president has enough distance to each other?

 

We talked with the director of photography and witness this special event, Jean Ekwą. How to behave Barack Obama at the gym?

 

President Obama at the gym behaved peacefully, culturally.No epatował their presence. If not for security, it is difficult to notice his presence. There were about 10 security guards.The guards were present in the room while he practiced on it.But “not held him by the hand.” The president looked laid-back, listening to music on headphones, sometimes a moment with someone spoke, he smiled, but he was focused on training. He practiced for about 40 to 50 minutes. Perform general-practice, a little walk on the treadmill, performed slopes, gimnastykował up – he told us Jean Ekwa.

 

Barack Obama did not avoid conversations with other guests gym.

 

When people hit on him, the president smiling, replied, casually, but very friendly, gave his hand. I have not talked to him. I knew that President Obama is in Poland, but I did not expect that I practiced with him at the gym – added Ekwa.

Tennessee Cotton Gin Boss Caught on Tape – We Hang BLACKS for Drinking WHITE PEOPLE ONLY Water

 

Published on Jun 3, 2014

A cotton gin in Memphis, Tennessee is facing a federal discrimination complaint after one of its supervisors was caught on a cell phone recording making racist remarks to black employees. African-American workers at the Atkinson Cotton Warehouse this week described to WREG treatment that evoked cotton’s historic connections to racism and slavery. According to Antonio Harris and Marrio Mangrum, their boss at the cotton gin longed for the days of Jim Crow, when white men could “hang” black men for drinking from the wrong water fountain. “He would be like, ‘You need to think like a white man,'” Mangrum recalled.
