🌟ON THIS DAY🌟155 years ago, President Abraham Lincoln addressed a large crowd at the Gettysburg National Cemetery - the site of one of the bloodiest and decisive battles of the Civil War. He only spoke for 2 minutes; his speech was only 10 sentences long. Yet it became one of the most powerful and widely remembered speeches in our nations history. "Fourscore and seven years ago our fathers brought forth, on this continent, a new nation, conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal. Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived, and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting-place for those who here gave their lives, that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this. But, in a larger sense, we cannot dedicate, we cannot consecrate—we cannot hallow—this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us—that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they here gave the last full measure of devotion—that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain—that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom, and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth." #history #onthisday #lincoln #civilwar #gettysburg

These are the first victims of the #californiawildfires to be identified. The current death toll is 79 and there are over 1,300 people still unaccounted for. The process of identifying the victims will take some time, due to the nature of the destruction the fires created. I will be profiling the known victims in my stories throughout the day. If you have any information to provide, please reach out in the comments or a direct message. 💔#campfire #woolseyfire #california #restinpeace #remembertheirnames

This is the face of a truly self made man who just donated $1.8 billion (yes, that’s billion with a “b”) to @johnshopkinsu which will be used exclusively for undergraduate financial aid. This extraordinarily generous gift will allow the college to have completely need blind admissions. Scores of future graduates and their families thank you Mike 🎓. And any college that didn’t accept you is in a world of hurt tonight. 😊 (By the way his lifetime giving BEFORE this is 6.4 billion. Wow!)

Hi everyone, happy #sunday! I wanted to share with you all a film I executive produced called “I Voted?” My friend Jason Smith spent six years on a one man mission to reveal the vulnerabilities in our elections. It is particularly relevant today, given what’s been happening in Florida and Georgia during and after the #midterms. Jason was kind enough to make the video available so all my followers can view it for free! Visit the link in my bio to watch in full, and as always, let me know what you think! @ivotedmovie #vote #ivoted #election #transparency #documentary

Hi everyone! Sony blocked me yet again (grrr Sony - what’s up with that?!? 😡) from posting the original “Don’t Stop Believing” video - but I love this version from the Glee cast so I wanted to share it with you all! I LOVED talking to @steveperrymusic on this week’s podcast. Not only did he tell me where he got the idea for “street light people” and “the smell of wine and cheap perfume” but he also explained why he walked away from Journey, what he’s been up to for the past thirty years; the woman who brought him back to music and...he sang with me! (Think Sam Cooke!) I think you’ll love listening to Steve’s as much as I did!

BREAKING: Democrat @staceyabrams has ended her campaign for governor of Georgia but asserted this was NOT a concession speech. She said that voting irregularities tainted the election but that former Secretary of State Brian Kemp, a Republican, would be declared the winner. •What are your thoughts on this?• “Since the beginning, our campaign has been dedicated to lifting up the voices of every community,” Lauren Groh-Wargo, Abrams’s campaign manager, said. If she had been elected, Abrams would have been the nation’s first black female governor. (photo by Tami Chappell / EPA-EFE) • #Repost @thelilynews #breaking #staceyabrams #georgia #election

This truly breaks my heart. Now the death toll from the Camp Fire in Northern California is up to 42 with hundreds (not sure if the exact number) still missing. I cannot fathom how terrifying this was and continues to be and the panic of people who can’t locate their loved ones. #repost from @gerardbutler •••••••••••••• Driving around Point Dume on Saturday. My heart aches for all those who lost their homes and their lives in California. I was one of the lucky ones, my home was only partially destroyed. A lot of people lost everything and will have to rebuild from scratch. I am ok and so grateful for all the well wishes. Please turn your support to those who need it most here, and throughout California. There’s a Go Fund Me to help the people across the state affected by the fires.

Repost from @nymag: Stan Lee, legendary publisher, editor and writer of @marvel comics has died at the age of 95. He was responsible for creating and co-creating iconic characters Black Panther, Spider-Man, Iron Man, the Incredible Hulk and countless others. “I used to be embarrassed because I was just a comic book writer while other people were building bridges or going on to medical careers. And then I began to realize: entertainment is one of the most important things in people’s lives. Without it, they might go off the deep end. I feel that if you’re able to entertain, you’re doing a good thing.” But back in 1968 he also said this: “Bigotry and racism are among the deadliest social ills plaguing the nation today.” #rip #stanlee

Scenes from the #californiawildfires taken by Ringo HW Chiu for the Associated Press. These images capture scenes from the destruction of Camp Fire, Woolsey Fire, and Hill Fire. Camp Fire has killed at least nine people in Paradise, CA and destroyed 6,453 structures. The Woolsey Fire has displaced over 200,000 people in Ventura County and Malibu. Hill Fire is burning near Thousand Oaks, where the Borderline mass shooting took place. The fire started Thursday and spread quickly, torching 10,000 acres in just six hours. I’m thinking of all those affected and the incredible firefighters who are working to contain the fires. I’ve posted the ways you can help the firefighters in California on my stories.❤️ #malibu #thousandoaks #woolseyfire #campfire #hillfire #staysafe

Oh and this young man Friday night! He is another national treasure. Loved being with my friend @scotthamilton84 at the #buyingtime benefit, an event started by our friends Dave and Clare Butler, truly remarkable people, in honor of Dave’s brother Dan who died of colon cancer when he was just 42. (like Jay...) Scott, who has had a very difficult journey—he’s been diagnosed with cancer three times—was so inspiring. He’s such a funny, lovely, charming guy! And at the spur of the moment I auctioned myself and @espnhannahstorm off for dinner...and we raised $50,000 for colon cancer research! #yay #goodpeople #thereishopeintheworld (yikes I need a better filter on this. And clearly I like the hand on chest pose! 🤪)

After such a heartbreaking week it was so wonderful to be with this man last night. I deeply admire @realmikejfox and the work of the @michaeljfoxorg which has raised more than 800 million dollars for Parkinson’s disease, the second leading brain disease after Alzheimer’s. Michael and his whole family, including his extraordinary wife @tracy.pollan face the challenges of his disease with courage, grace and purpose. I feel so lucky to know them.(sorry for the extreme close up! Blame @williegeist 😆)

🚨PART 2🚨 •Currently, 18 states plus Washington DC have addressed this loophole by requiring waiting periods or similar measures. •States with the strictest gun laws like California, Connecticut, Hawaii, Massachusetts, New Jersey and New York have among the lowest rates of gun-related deaths. •Only 8 states have banned automatic weapons. •Legislation in California banned possession of large-capacity magazines through proposition 63 in 2016 but the NRA has held up implementation by challenging it in court, and the Thousand Oaks shooter used one, thanks for NRA interference in voter will. •Americans make up just over 4 percent of the global population, but own 42 percent of guns worldwide. •The United States has the weakest gun laws in the developed world. •After mass shootings in Britain and Australia, (31 and 22 years ago respectively) sweeping regulations followed which significantly reduced gun violence. •While mass shootings get the most amount of attention, nearly two-thirds of all gun deaths in the US are suicides: an average of 59 deaths a day. •Over the past decade, the US firearm suicide rate has increased by 19%. •States with the highest rates of gun ownership have four times as many suicides involving a firearm which is almost always lethal. (People who attempt suicide through other means are often unsuccessful and get help) •While mental illness is a problem and can contribute to suicides and mass shootings, experts believe that it is the easy access to firearms that sets the U.S. apart; while mental illness exists in other countries, the number of deaths from gun violence per capita is dramatically higher in the U.S. #guncontrol

I love my Instagram followers and know many of you are reeling from the most recent mass shooting in Thousand Oaks, California. I wanted to make sure you (and I!) had accurate information about gun violence in America, so I reached out to Robyn Thomas, the Executive Director at the Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence. I hope the information below is useful as we continue to grapple with how to reduce the number of people who are killed by gun violence every day (an average of 96 a day) I am interested in working together to reduce gun violence and to spare the lives of those who were massacred simply trying to enjoy a night of line dancing and fun. I really believe if we work together, we can come up with some solutions that the majority of Americans can support. •There have been 307 mass shootings in the US so far this year. That is almost one per day. •A mass shooting is defined as “an incident in which four or more people are shot, not including the shooter.” •Children and teens in America are 17 times more likely to be killed with a firearm than young people in other developed countries. •Federal law requires federally licensed firearms dealers to do background checks and maintain records of all gun sales. The problem is a huge number of guns are purchased NOT from federally licensed firearms dealers but from private dealers, gun shows and online, where no background checks are required. •While 18 states have expanded the federal law to ensure background checks are done on ALL gun sales, 32 states HAVE NOT. •Researchers have found that states that require background checks on ALL gun sales have less than half as many mass shooting incidents (52% fewer) as states without that background check requirement. •90% of the American public supports background checks for all gun sales. •74% of NRA members support background checks for all gun sales. •There is no federal waiting period for purchasing guns. Federal law allows a dealer to deliver a gun to a purchase

California has been through so much this week. Now, three fires, Camp Fire, Hill Fire, and Woolsey Fire are currently burning through Northern California and around Ventura County and Malibu at an alarming rate. The Camp Fire burned 70,000 acres in just 24 hours. Part of the reason these fires are spreading so fast is because there is also a downslope windstorm coming from the east off the crest of the Sierra Nevada. It’s terrifying and heartbreaking. 9 people have died in the fires, and countless homes and business have been lost. As I post this, the fires have only been 5% contained. Authorities estimate they won’t be fully contained until November 30th. Two of these fires are just a few miles from Thousand Oaks, where the mass shooting took place on Wednesday. I’m thinking of all those affected, and the brave firefighters who are working tirelessly to put these fires out. Please stay safe. If you have images or videos you’d like to share, DM me and I’ll repost to spread awareness. 🙏🏻❤️ #campfire #thousandoaks #californiawildfires #staysafe

What a perfect #wednesday for #WednesdayWomen to fall on! The 2018 #midterms showed a record breaking number of women running for and getting elected to public office - 273 women representing both parties were on the ballot in the 2018 midterm elections. More women will be serving in Congress than ever before, and we are seeing many firsts; first female governors, first LGBTQ representatives, first African American, Native American, Muslim and Latina representatives - the list goes on and on! While there is still a ways to go, I wanted to celebrate all the women who made history last night - I’m feeling very proud & inspired! 💪🏼💥 #women #womenempowerment #elections #congress

Seeing Larousse for the first time in eight years - words can’t describe how happy I am to see him! Look at how tall and handsome he is!! 😍😍😍💙💙💙💙 Thank you to @wworphans for finding Larousse, giving him a home and a family to love him and helping him become a man. Larousse is now in High School and wants to become a civil engineer and social worker so he can help children like himself! Looking for a tears of joy emoji but can’t find one! ❤️❤️❤️ #soproud

I will never forget covering the 2010 earthquake in Haiti. My team and I went to Port-au-Prince to cover the horrific destruction for the @cbs Evening News. We stopped by a makeshift hospital tent that was set up by volunteer doctors and nurses from Belgium and that was where I met Larousse Pierre, a 13 year old boy who lost his mother in the earthquake. (His father had died when he was younger) He had a broken leg, and the doctors were trying to reset it without any anesthesia or medicine for the pain. This video is hard to watch, even eight years later, but it does get better. I couldn’t stop thinking about Larousse after I left Haiti, so I reached out to my friend Jane Aronson, who is the CEO and founder of @wworphans - an organization whose mission is to transform the lives of orphaned children through programs that address the medical and developmental conditions of children living abroad. Jane was able to find Larousse and get him healed and healthy and into school. He will graduate in three years and hopes to become a civil engineer and a social worker to help other children in need. Tonight, I will see Larousse for the first time in 8 years at the Worldwide Orphans Gala and I could not be more excited. I will share pictures with you all later in the evening! ❤️

Now that I’ve gotten your attention...good morning everyone! This is the percentage of people who vote in midterm elections. Less than half! How crazy is that? We. Are. Better. Than. This. Please exercise your right and civic responsibility and vote on Tuesday. It’s important and some places give you a sticker which I like to wear afterwards or put on my phone. As Franklin D. Roosevelt said: “Let us never forget that government is ourselves and not an alien power over us. The ultimate rulers of our democracy are not a President or Senators or Congressmen or government officials but the voters of this country.” So vote and bring a friend and make sure everyone you know is doing the same! 🇺🇸❤️🇺🇸😘 PS Tell me where you plan to vote! ⭐️⭐️⭐️ and take a picture of yourself voting and I will do a montage of them on Wednesday! (I think I’m addicted to Instagram and may need help...🤪)#changethe% #vote

Good morning everyone. I went to a Washington DC last week to join so many people in saying goodbye to Matthew Shepard as his ashes were finally interred in the Washington National Cathedral. His death became a symbol against anti gay hate and violence, and his parents were worried his final resting place would be desecrated. Now, he is finally able to rest peacefully, in the company of Helen Keller, Woodrow Wilson, and other dignitaries. Judy and Dennis spoke to me at the @smithsonian after donating some of Matthew’s possessions. You can watch our full interview, on @time’s website or by visiting the link in my bio. Thank you Dennis and Judy. I’m grateful for your strength, friendship and activism. ❤️ #matthewshepard #time #interview #thursday

@lynseyaddario is my #wednesdaywoman because her photographs speak volumes. Lynsey has traveled all over the world, often in war zones to capture the human faces behind these conflicts. She’s won multiple awards, including a Pulitzer Prize for International Reporting and a MacArthur genius grant. She’s documented life in Afghanistan under Taliban rule, Iraq following the US-led invasion, and in western Sudan in the aftermath of the genocide in Darfur, for publications like the @nytimes, @newsweek, and @natgeo. She’s been kidnapped, ambushed, and injured while capturing these critically important stories and images. “As a photographer who is constantly in violent, bloody situation where the instinct is to turn away, I am always trying to figure out how to make people not turn away.” Lynsey is fearless and one of the nicest people I know. Her new book “Of Love and War” is a collection of many of her most moving photographs and the stories behind them. #womenwednesday #wednesday #wcw #photography

Hi everyone! My documentary, Gender Revolution has been made available for FREE streaming on @natgeo AND @youtube - you can also still watch on @netflix as well 😊 I wanted to share this clip of Ally, a young girl I spoke with who knew from a very early age that the body she was born in was not the correct one. At the age of 7 1/2 Ally was contemplating suicide. I was shocked to learn that 40% of transgender adults attempt suicide, and 92% of those individuals attempt suicide before the age of 25. Making this documentary was incredibly eye opening for me, and I encourage you all to watch to expand your understanding. #genderrevolution #natgeo #awareness #transgender #wontbeerased

One week from Election Day, here is a piece from another hero I have the honor of calling my friend. Sully Sullenberger’s quick thinking, calm demeanor and wealth of experience enabled him to safely land his disabled aircraft on the Hudson River ten years ago this February. As he writes in his op-ed piece for the @washingtonpost - “A leader sets the tone and must create an environment in which all can do their best. You get what you project. Whether it is calm and confidence - or fear, anger, and hatred - people will respond in kind. Courage can be contagious.” Thank you, Sully and I hope YOUR answer will be yes too. #vote #miracleonthehudson #election

Rose Mallinger’s grandson, who has been so dear to me through Instagram during this devastating time, just sent me a photo of his grandmother with a statement from the family which he said I could share with all of you. It reads as follows: “Rose was Bubbie to us, Yiddish for grandma. She was an incredible woman and a pillar of the Jewish community of Squirrel Hill for more than sixty years. The Tree of Life Synagogue was the center of her very active life. To Bubbie, family was everything. She knew her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren better than they knew themselves. She retained her sharp wit, humor and intelligence til the very last day. We will miss her presence and her company greatly.” I know everyone joins me in sending the Mallinger family our heartfelt sympathy. Rest In Peace Rose. 🥀 1921-2018

Vickie Lee Jones, 67. Vickie was shot in the parking lot of the Kroger grocery store. Vickie was a retired office administrator at the Veteran Affairs hospital as well as a breast cancer survivor. She loved to travel and was a faithful member of the Church of the Living God. “She was a beautiful spirit, kind soul, God-fearing woman. Always had candy in her purse. I don’t know if it was to tell people you know ‘Here, suck on this’ or if it was ‘You need some help with your breath right now.’” Recounts her nephew, Kevin Gunn. #restinpeace #jeffersontown

I also wanted to take time today to highlight the victims of another horrific shooting that happened last week in Jeffersontown, Kentucky. A man tried unsuccessfully to enter First Baptist Church, a historically black church, before going into a Kroger grocery store where he then shot and killed two people. The police chief of Jeffersontown declared the shooting a hate crime. This hasn’t gotten as much attention, but it is just as heartbreaking, and I wanted to share the stories of the two people who lost their lives that day. Maurice E. Stallard, 69, a military veteran and retired GE employee, was shot in the back of the head and multiple times in the back while shopping for poster board with his 12 year old grandson. Maurice was the father of Kellie Watson, who works for Louisville mayor Greg Fisher as his chief equity officer. Those who knew Maurice described him as a warm, easy-going family man who always greeted people with a hug. #restinpeace #jeffersontown

One of his former patients, Michael Kerr wrote: “In the old days for HIV patients in Pittsburgh he was the one to go to. Basically before there was effective treatment for fighting HIV itself, he was known in the community for keeping us alive the longest.

But Daniel offered to join him and for days the two of them worked side by side to pack up the condo. He had also recently become a grandfather “My dad was a simple man and did not require much.” Writes Joe Stein, Daniel’s son. “In this picture he was having a great day doing two things he loved very much. He had just finished coming from synagogue, which he loved and then got to play with his grandson which he loved even more!” #restinpeace #pittsburgh #remembertheirnames

I wanted to share this photo of David and Cecil Rosenthal, the two brothers who were killed in the shooting at the Tree of Life synagogue. I’ve received many messages about these two brothers and their family and my new friend Hillary wrote about them in the previous post. They both had some intellectual disabilities but their mom, Joy raised them to be vibrant participants in their community and synagogue. Many have written to me to say they were the kindest and most wonderful people they had ever met and depended on each other so. David was shy and Cecil never met a stranger. We are thinking of them, their mom and sisters Diane and Michelle tonight as well as all the victims. I love my Instagram community and so appreciate those who have ties to SQ Hill and Tree of Life reaching out and sharing their stories and their sorrow. We grieve with you. Love from all of us.(Thank you for your memories and thank you @sdunngeon for this photo...)

Take a moment to read these names and imagine their families and the excruciating pain they are in and then imagine if this had happened to your mother or father or grandmother or grandfather or anyone you love.

Today I had the privilege of attending the service of Thanksgiving and Remembrance for Matthew Wayne Shepard. I covered this story 20 years ago when Matthew was murdered in Laramie, Wyoming. He was abducted by two men he met in a pub, brutally beaten and pistol whipped before they took him and tied his body to a fence. Matthew was 21 years old and a small man - 5’2” and 105 pounds. When a cyclist saw him the next morning he thought he was a scarecrow and the first police officer on the scene saw Matthew was barely breathing, his face covered with blood except for the lines where his tears had fallen. There was also a deer that was lying on the ground next to him that scampered away when help arrived. Matthew was in a coma and died six days later. Judy and Dennis Shepard are two of my personal heroes. They have taken their son’s tragic, senseless death and have become warriors against anti gay violence and hate. Judy has spoken to some 2 million people and has left those who have heard her forever changed. Today, Matthew’s ashes were finally laid to rest at Washington National Cathedral. It was a profoundly moving service and I’m so grateful I was there to honor him and pay my respects. He had not been buried because there was deep concern that his grave would be desecrated. As the right Reverend V. Gene Robinson-the first openly gay bishop in the Episcopal Church-said during his homily, “Gently rest in this place. You are safe now. And Matt...welcome home.” It was a beautiful, haunting service. If anyone is interested in Matthew and the impact he had in his too short life, you can support the important work of the Matthew Shepard Foundation. And please try to live a life of compassion and grace. (www.matthewshepard.org) #restinpeacematthew #matthewshepard

Today’s #WednesdayWomen is a double header! I wanted to shine a light on not one but two amazing women: Mandognin Bamba and Jodi Beck. Mandognin and Jodi met 10 years ago through @imentororg - which is an organization that has created nearly 30,000 relationships between student and adult mentors who are invested in their academic success. When Mandognin and Jodi first met, Mandognin had just moved to the US from Côte d’Ivoire and barely spoke any English. Jodi and Mandognin were paired together and now, 10 years later, their stories are intricately interwoven. Jodi supported Mandognin while she learned English, during her college application process, when she got a full ride to Queens College, and when she graduated with a degree in political science. Afterwards, Mandognin was able to take Jodi to Africa with her for a month so Jodi could meet her family! After a decade together, there is no way to know either of these women without knowing the unique story between them. It’s the rarest of relationships, which is exactly what makes it so powerful. If you’re interested in volunteering as a mentor, visit imentor.org/mentor - it’s a great organization that I’m proud to be a part of! #wednesday #wednesdaywomen #mentor #love

Sandra Day O’Connor, the first female justice on the US Supreme Court, announced yesterday that she had been diagnosed with dementia. “While the final chapter of my life with dementia may be trying, nothing has diminished my gratitude and deep appreciation for the countless blessings in my life,” she wrote. She added: “As a young cowgirl from the Arizona desert, I never could have imagined that one day I would become the first woman justice on the US Supreme Court.” I interviewed Justice O’Connor for @datelinenbc in 2002 about growing up in Arizona and about her professional life as a judge, which culminated in a call from President Reagan telling her s was his choice as the next Supreme Court justice. She spoke with me about the enormous responsibility that came with being “the first.” 👩‍⚖️ Since her announcement, I’ve been thinking about her and all she’s accomplished with tremendous respect, admiration, and appreciation. 📹 c\o @datelinenbc #sandradayoconnor #wednesday #itdidmatter #itdoesmatter

I recently watched “Won’t You Be My Neighbor” and it restored my faith in humanity! I remember visiting Mister Rogers neighborhood when I interviewed Fred several years ago. One of the most moving scenes in the film was when Mister Rogers sang to Jeff Erlanger - a young boy who was left as a quadriplegic after surgery to remove a tumor on his spine when he was 7 months old. I dare you to watch this and not get choked up - it’s so moving and so wonderful to see this sort of kindness and compassion, now more than ever. Mr. Rogers was an 😇 on earth. You can watch the full clip on my IGTV and the full movie on demand or on @amazon ! #wontyoubemyneighbor #misterrodgers #love #tbt PS. Jeff became an activist and advocate for people with disabilities and died in 2007 at the age of 36. His parents are featured in the movie. 😢

My sister Emily passed away 17 years ago today. She was 54. Emily was remarkable. Whip smart, driven and compassionate, the eldest child in the Couric family who set a wonderful example (and high bar) for the three who followed. Emily was running for Lt. Governor in Virginia when she was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and had to step down. She was replaced by Tim Kaine who went on, of course, to do great things. As I’ve watched so many women decide to run for office and get into public service, it’s made me think of my sister, who as a state Senator loved representing the people of Charlottesville and all of Albemarle County. Emily would be so proud of the many women who want to “be the change they wish to see.” Emily’s wonderful husband George, along with her friends and family and the good people of Virginia established the Emily Couric Cancer Center at UVA which has helped so many dealing with this maddening disease. #rememberingemily #vote

It’s #Wednesday and you know what that means! This is the day we celebrate cool women doing great things. I went to @marblechurchnyc on Sunday and the minister Michael Bos mentioned a woman named Michelle Lee who lives here in New York City. Michelle is a librarian and through her work helping young adults with career counseling, she learned that many of them didn’t have things they needed for job interviews like ties, bags, or briefcases. She decided if you could check out books, why not be able to check out these items that help give you an extra boost of confidence for a big interview! She got a budget from the library, purchased the items from Amazon, and now job seekers can check them out from the library for up to three weeks! How great is that?! Here is Michelle next to the “Dress Up Lending Library.” You go Michelle! #wednesdaywomen #wcw #nypl @nypl

The one and only Angela Lansbury is 93 years old today! You’ve got to check out the surprise ending of this video...I ❤️ surprises! I love this clip of her performing from MAME at the 1975 Tony Awards, doesn’t she look fabulous!? (that’s why the video is a little bit blurry - sorry about that!) Happy Birthday, Angela!

My mom took me to @Sears to buy my first bra in 7th grade (this isn’t me btw😏) I was sad to see that @Sears is declaring bankruptcy since they were so key to my development. (Literally and figuratively) 💔#tbt

I visited @inagarten out in the Hamptons to learn about the key ingredients for running a successful business, pursuing your passions - no matter what they might be - and also how to make a fig and ricotta cake! Ina drops a lot of wisdom in this episode of “Getting There” - this is one of my favorites from the day! Watch the full episode on my Facebook, YouTube, or by clicking the link in my bio! @theskimm @secretdeodorant #gettingtherewithkatie #inagarten #barefootcontessa #cooking #happyfriday

As you all know, I’m a sucker for weddings!! I thought Princess Eugenie looked beautiful in her wedding dress, which was cut low in the back and revealed scars from a scoliosis operation on her spine. “I think you can change the way beauty is, and you can show people your scars and I think it’s really special to stand up for that.” says @princesseugenie . I know everyone is posting about this today but if you can’t beat em, join em! Congrats to the happy couple #PrincessEugenie and her husband Jack Brooksbank. #royalwedding 💍💕

As Mr. Rogers said, “Look to the helpers.” Goodnight friends. photo courtesy Jabin Botsford @washingtonpost.(will find some organizations today since many of you don’t feel comfy with the Red Cross)

Happy #NationalComingOutDay! I know this day can be incredibly joyful for some, and painful for others. I stand in solidarity and support of all of you, and I would encourage everyone to watch my documentary, “Gender Revolution” now on @netflix and @hulu. We cover the stories of incredible people and I hope it inspires you as much as they inspired me. 💓

Congrats @michelleobama on the launch of @globalgirlsalliance 💓💓 “Right now, more than 98 million adolescent girls around the world are not in school. We all have a responsibility to change that. Today on International #DayoftheGirl, the @ObamaFoundation is launching the Global Girls Alliance—a program which seeks to empower adolescent girls around the world through education, allowing them to achieve their full potential and to transform their families, communities, and countries.” #GlobalGirlsAlliance

Today is Eleanor Roosevelt’s birthday! She was the first presidential spouse to hold regular press conferences, write a daily newspaper column, write a monthly magazine column, host a weekly radio show, and speak at a national party convention. She advocated for expanded roles for women in the workplace, the civil rights of African Americans and Asian Americans, and the rights of World War II refugees. Eleanor was an incredible woman, who left us with many inspiring words to live by so I wanted to share with you all one of my favorites! Happy Birthday, Eleanor! #eleanorroosevelt #eleanorrooseveltquote #happybirthday

Today’s #WednesdayWomen also happens to fall on #WorldMentalHealthDay so I wanted to highlight @elyse.fox, founder of the @sadgirlsclub. Sad Girls Club is an Instagram account that has grown into a community, both on and offline. Elyse started Sad Girls Club as a way to open up about her mental health struggles, and create a safe space for girls to be honest and find support. It has now evolved into a real-life community with over 53,000 members - and Elyse has organized over 20 meetups for free group therapy sessions. Elyse has struggled with depression since she was a child but did not receive her diagnosis until age 23. “Growing up, there was a lack of representation of what mental health looked like in general, but especially among women of color.” she says. “There was no advocates who were successful, proud-and also had depression, or anxiety, or PTSD openly. I didn’t have an outlet - I basically created Sad Girls Club for the 10 year old Elyse - it’s all the things I would have wanted to see when I was going through what I was going through.”❤️ I think it’s so important to remove the stigma of mental health issues and be more open about it. I was alarmed to learn that anxiety has surpassed depression as the most common mental health issue and more than one in four women between the ages of 16-24 experience mental health problems (such as generalized anxiety disorder, depression, phobias, and obsessive compulsive disorders) and are nearly three times more likely to suffer from these disorders than men in the same age range. Thank you Elyse for all the work you are doing & and if you want to learn more visit @sadgirlsclub ! #wednesday #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #sadgirlsclub

Breaking News: Nikki Haley, US Ambassador to the @unitednations has resigned directly to President Trump. She says, “It’s been the honor of a lifetime - I’ve been such a lucky girl to leave the state that raised me and serve the country I love. Look at what has happened in two years in the US on foreign policy. Now the US is respected, other countries may not like what we do, but they respect what we do.” #breakingnews #nikkihaley
