But we did it! Happy New Year, Everyone!

United We Stand

09/09/2022

Today we mourn with our friends.

Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II was more than a monarch. She defined an era.

In a world of constant change, she was a steadying presence and a source of comfort and pride for generations of Britons, including many who have never known their country without her. An enduring admiration for Queen Elizabeth II united people across the Commonwealth. The seven decades of her history-making reign bore witness to an age of unprecedented human advancement and the forward march of human dignity.

She was the first British monarch to whom people all around the world could feel a personal and immediate connection—whether they heard her on the radio as a young princess speaking to the children of the United Kingdom, or gathered around their televisions for her coronation, or watched her final Christmas speech or her Platinum Jubilee on their phones. And she, in turn, dedicated her whole life to their service.

Supported by her beloved Prince Philip for 73 years, Queen Elizabeth II led always with grace, an unwavering commitment to duty, and the incomparable power of her example. She endured the dangers and deprivations of a world war alongside the British people and rallied them during the devastation of a global pandemic to look to better days ahead. Through her dedication to her patronages and charities, she supported causes that uplifted people and expanded opportunity. By showing friendship and respect to newly independent nations around the world, she elevated the cause of liberty and fostered enduring bonds that helped strengthen the Commonwealth, which she loved so deeply, into a community to promote peace and shared values.

Queen Elizabeth II was a stateswoman of unmatched dignity and constancy who deepened the bedrock Alliance between the United Kingdom and the United States. She helped make our relationship special.

We first met the Queen in 1982, traveling to the UK as part of a Senate delegation. And we were honored that she extended her hospitality to us in June 2021 during our first overseas trip as President and First Lady, where she charmed us with her wit, moved us with her kindness, and generously shared with us her wisdom. All told, she met 14 American presidents. She helped Americans commemorate both the anniversary of the founding of Jamestown and the bicentennial of our independence. And she stood in solidarity with the United States during our darkest days after 9/11, when she poignantly reminded us that “Grief is the price we pay for love.”

In the years ahead, we look forward to continuing a close friendship with The King and The Queen Consort. Today, the thoughts and prayers of people all across the United States are with the people of the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth in their grief. We send our deepest condolences to the Royal Family, who are not only mourning their Queen, but their dear mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. Her legacy will loom large in the pages of British history, and in the story of our world.

Our thoughts are with all friends and family who suffered and may be recovering from the ravages of Typhoon Hinnamnor.

Today we celebrate the achievement of this Korean War veteran. Happy International Moon Day!

in 1969 U.S. Navy test pilot and Korean War veteran Neil Armstrong became the first person to step foot on the surface of the moon. U.S. Air Force lunar module pilot Buzz Aldrin followed 20 minutes later. All of the experience Armstrong gained as a naval aviator he put back into the Gemini 8 and famed Apollo 11 missions. The U.S. Navy offered their gratitude upon his passing and on September 14, 2012 his ashes were scattered in the Atlantic Ocean after being transported aboard guided missile cruiser USS Philippine Sea (CG 58).

Heartfelt thanks to all who came out to celebrate Juneteenth with us!

The Korean Bell is rung every year on the Fourth of July. It is so fitting that today we start a new annual tradition ringing the bell to mark and the delayed emancipation of the enslaved people of Texas.

Thank you to the San Pedro- Wilmington NAACP, Juneteenth 400, and the Korean Friendship Bell Preservation Committee for bringing us together today.

We will never forget.

“감사합니다”라는 말로는 결코 충분히 형용할 수 없습니다. 오늘 미국 현충일을 맞아 한국전쟁에 참전했던 분들을 비롯해 우리가 오늘날 누리고 있는 자유를 수호하기 위해 희생하신 모든 분들을 기립니다.

"Thank you" will never be enough. On this 🇺🇸 , we honor and remember all, including those served in , who sacrificed for our freedom.
