This Holocaust Remembrance Day, let's remind ourselves what happens when we don't rush to help the oppressed, the victimized, the vulnerable. When evil rears it's head, as it inevitably does, only concerted action can prevent unbearable human suffering.

Never Again.

At the confirmation hearing of @LindaT_G as U.S. Ambassador to the @UN Congress should ask:

What is the Administration’s strategy to preserve unimpeded humanitarian access into and within #Syria?

Glad to see Senator @ChrisMurphyCT and nominee @LindaT_G taking on the critical issues of humanitarian access into #Syria. We must ensure that aid remains unimpeded where it's needed most.

@verified @Twitter note about verification: "In response to current events, we may verify accounts meeting only criteria from Column B due to their expertise or public role in matters of high public interest, as well as their susceptibility to impersonation."

SO #VERIFYME pls!

@Twitter @verified continues to #verify accounts, yet mine still has not received a blue check. With the fake fundraisers and accounts pretending to be me, verifying my account is an assured way for people to know THIS & THIS ALONE is my account. @TwitterSupport @TwitterSafety

And just because many children may be asymptomatic, does not mean they cannot transmit the virus, or that they won't have any long-term health issues resulting from infection. Especially with B117 out there and rapidly rising case numbers in schools, this must be considered.

We also know that kids aren't the only ones in school buildings - #COVID19 k-12 staff rates (including teachers, admins, janitorial, transportation and other support staff) are much higher than community rates for the same population groups.

 488  3  67

People who are misguided on k12 COVID-19 cases and ask "Is it safe to open schools yet?" are asking the wrong question.

One of many right questions is:
"What is this administration able and willing to do to MAKE schools safe to reopen?"

A thread...

@SheilaN81732325 @bsw5020 @jaketapper @sabrevaya Statistically it's not always that simple.

Research says the strongest predictor for separation/divorce over serious illness is whether or not the sick person is a woman.

Men are 7 times more likely to leave their partner if illness requires caregiving.

@bsw5020 @jaketapper @sabrevaya I know what it is like. My husband felt bad that I was the one shoveling snow, moving things for him, giving him showers, cutting his food. I know if it was me who had ALS he would have done the same for me and more.❤️❤️❤️

The Democratic Senate has decided to play hardball with the opposing team.

Probably has something to do with having the opposing team endanger democracy and all of their lives.

Most in the GOP giving the green light for a future coup attempt. At some point this year we may be able to stop wearing masks. But the vigilance required to save our Democracy will take decades.

From the AP: A pair of endangered Mexican gray wolves and their seven pups have been sent ... to Mexico. ... The pack of predators will eventually be released into the wild after they learn to hunt and survive on their own.
