Earth Day is an important day of commemoration for the Department of State, both here in D.C. and at our overseas posts. American embassies and consulates use #EarthDay events to start conversations about and inspire action on climate change, resource conservation, and wildlife protection. How will you spend Earth Day? What will you do?

"We find perhaps no greater threat to human dignity, no greater assault on basic freedom, than the evil of #humantrafficking -- what we call modern-day #slavery and what Pope Francis himself denounced as 'a crime against humanity'. ...As Christians the world over celebrate Easter, this is a fitting place to fix our gaze...when we embrace our common humanity and stand up for the dignity of all people, we realize the vision of a world that is more caring and more just, a world free from slavery." -- Secretary of State John Kerry, April 20, 2014

+Thomas Maffei I don't see how the corporate influence has anything to do with foreign policy. Yes corporations have incredible influence over domestic policy. Special interest are even worse now days causing POTUS to be beholden to contributors as seen in Obama's presidency. My comments are more about foreign policy and sending money to foreign terrorist groups. Nothing to do with corporate America.

Before you try insulting people maybe you should have a specific statement your disagreeing with rather then talk about corporate issues in a foreign policy discussions

"For me, and for countless other Christians, Holy Week and #Easter are times for reflection and renewal. ...The common thread of humanity that connects us all -- not just Christians and Jews, but Muslims and Hindus and Sikhs -- is our shared commitment to love our neighbors as we love ourselves. To remember, I am my brother’s keeper. I am my sister’s keeper. Whatever your faith, believer or nonbeliever, there’s no better time to rededicate ourselves to that universal mission." -- President Barack Obama, April 19, 2014

Mr. President - We give Jesus all honor and praise, Happy
Easter to you!  This bold,  faith affirming message is great news, Sir.  

THIS FAITH DECLARATION inspires everyone during a time when we all need to uplift one another. I posted this HOPEFUL MESSAGE on Linkedin and truly THANK YOU for making very clear your commitment to your CHRISTIAN FAITH and sharing about the impact is has on you. 

Jesus is the King of kings and the Lord of lords and wants HIS NAME to be honored above all other gods.
And, we all need a SAVIOR, Mr. President.  Great jobs, Sir!

God Bless You, Mr. President, your family and the USA. And, yes, let us all learn to love our neighbors as ourselves - and even our enemies, as Jesus called us to do!  And, let's pray for one another, in Jesus Name - the name above every name - and that which it is written, "every knee shall bow and tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord".  Halleluia - THAT'S GOOD NEWS.

North Korea's egregious #humanrights violations include one of the world's last remaining systems of forced labor camps and penal colonies. Over 100,000 North Koreans are held captive in camps beset by starvation and brutal abuse. Hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of North Koreans have perished from preventable hunger. The more we learn about conditions inside #NorthKorea, the harder it becomes for the regime to deny the facts, and the more determined we become to change them. For more information, go to www.HumanRights.gov.
