Ken Burns says history has a way of making you an optimist.Lynn Novick says 40 million Vietnamese will be able to watch the 18 hour documentary she and Ken Burns have created to help them understandMcCain says never again send our people off to fight a lost cause. Be honest with the people.McCain says "if we are going to fight another war, everyone must be involved." To great applause of the audience at the screening.I hope this discussion of Burn's Vietnam epic film tonight w/ McCain, Kerry & Hagels a series of national conversations. We still need it.Remarkable effort by Kerry and McMain to help normalize relations between US & Vietnam so that we could normalize relations with ourselves.John Kerry and John McCain say don't confuse the warriors with the war. This is best invitation for America to come to grips w/the War.Amazing discussion of Burn's Vietnam documentary w/ John Kerry, John McCain & Chuck Havel. May the healing began! https://t.co/a9lPnaTNJVInspiring to return to DC & hear @Lin_Manuel talk about our American story. https://t.co/rauQSLqd5BThank you to the courageous firefighters, first responders & others continuing to work around the clock https://t.co/gISQBdyrWn

As we reauthorize NFIP & invest in rebuilding Houston, Congress must also invest in all communities by preparing for potential disasters.Be it wildfire, hurricane, flooding or earthquake, natural disasters are only increasing b/c of climate change. We must be prepared.The # of people living in harm's way is expanding; more properties & more lives are at risk from both natural & human-caused disasters.Federal investment in natural disasters should include mitigation, as well as response & recovery. Contrast with: https://t.co/04YruF7d70We must also seize this moment to establish a true partnership to strengthen disaster preparedness and mitigation. https://t.co/eIX8W1KSfpThe scenes from Houston & the surrounding communities are heartbreaking. Congress must stand w/ these communities to help rebuild & renew.#DREAMers, we stand with you. We will #DefendDACA.
