|Friend -- |
Because of you, my second inauguration started with service.
Michelle and I helped out with some improvement projects at Burrville Elementary School in D.C. -- Joe and Jill put together care packages for our troops at the D.C. Armory. And thousands of Americans in all 50 states honored Dr. Martin Luther King by following his example, and giving back.
Thanks for being part of it, and pledging to serve in 2013.
You made a commitment because you know it can't just be about one day. If we want to realize change in our communities, we've got to be in it for the long haul, and it has to start with each of us.
In the weeks ahead, you'll be contacted by someone from my administration's agency on service and volunteering -- the Corporation for National and Community Service -- with resources and opportunities to help you fulfill your pledge to serve in 2013.
Get started here:
The inauguration was a reminder that we're all in this together -- each of us has the power to set this country's course. Thanks again for helping Michelle, Joe, Jill, and me make service a big part of that weekend. We couldn't have done it without you.
