About 1 in 8 women in the United States will develop breast cancer in her lifetime. Remember those who have been diagnosed, and those who have lost their lives to this deadly disease. Early detection is key. #BreastCancerAwarenessMonth

CM @RepGregoryMeeks: Secretary Colin Powell was a historic American who never forgot who he was and where he came from. He was a public servant of the deepest integrity and, as the first African American Secretary of State, an inspiration to many. My condolences to his family.
