My friend John Lewis is surely smiling down on his beloved Georgia this morning, as people across the state carried forward the baton that he and so many others passed down to them.

Tomorrow is Election Day in Georgia and the stakes could not be higher. We’re seeing how far some will go to retain power and threaten the fundamental principles of our democracy. But our democracy isn’t about any individual, even a president—it’s about you. If you’re a Georgia voter, you can respond tomorrow with the most powerful tool we have as Americans—your vote. Make a plan to vote in person tomorrow or drop off your mail-in ballot at a ballot drop box. And make sure to check-in with your family and friends to do the same at iwillvote.com/GA. For those looking for ways to help @RaphaelWarnock and @JonOssoff get elected, you can find opportunities to volunteer from anywhere at flipthesenate.com.

Georgia, you voted in record numbers to send @JoeBiden and @KamalaHarris to the White House. In a moment when America needed you the most, you rejected fear and division, and sent a message for change. Now we need you to show up again to vote @JonOssoff and @RaphaelWarnock to the U.S. Senate. Make your plan to vote on Tuesday, January 5 at iwillvote.com/GA.

For Christmas, Michelle surprised me with this drawing of the 12th hole at Augusta National by the terrific artist, @ValentinoDixon. It’s an incredible piece, but the story behind it is even better. Valentino grew up in Buffalo, New York, and developed a great skill and passion for drawing from a young age. Unfortunately, when he was 21, he was wrongfully convicted for a crime he didn’t commit and sentenced to a minimum of 38 ½ years in prison. For more than two decades behind bars, he maintained his innocence. Eventually, he renewed his passion for art, thanks to the advice of his uncle, who told him, “If you reclaim your talent, you can reclaim your life.” Despite never visiting a golf course, he went on to use photos from magazines to draw golf courses like the one in this photo. His art and his story gained national attention in 2012 through his family’s tireless advocacy and a couple of profiles in golf publications. Then, in 2018, three undergraduate students from Georgetown’s Innocence Project uncovered evidence that proved the innocence Valentino had maintained all along. And after 27 years, he was free. Today, Valentino travels extensively to share his story and promote the need for criminal justice reform. And thankfully, for me and for so many others, he continues to draw. I’m so proud to have one of his works to display.

Over the next year, lawmakers across the nation will begin redrawing their state’s electoral maps and progress on every single issue we care about is on the line. Health care. Gun violence prevention. Criminal justice reform. Immigration reform. And so much more. @AllOnTheLine is engaging citizens in the map-drawing process to ensure voters have a say in who represents their communities. I’m so proud of what this team, led by my friend @EricHolder, has built and accomplished in the last few years. They’re leading a grassroots movement of people across the country who will demand fair maps in their states and ensure that everyone has a voice in our democracy.

Climate change is one of the most urgent threats of our time. That’s why my administration worked to make sure protecting the environment was a priority starting with my first term in office. As a result of our work, the Environmental Protection Agency was able to set a nationwide standard for greenhouse gas emissions for the first time in history. #APromisedLand

This Christmas looks different for all of us. As we spend time with those we love—in person or virtually—let us celebrate the blessings we cherish, embrace the spirit of giving, and look out for one another. From my family to yours, Merry Christmas!

What struck me most during our travels on the campaign trail was how familiar everything felt—whether we were at a county fair or a union hall or on the porch on someone’s farm. In them, I heard echoes of my grandparents, my mother, Michelle’s mom and dad. Same values. Same hopes and dreams. #APromisedLand

As I shared in #APromisedLand, my mother had always been quick to remind me that there was a direct link between doing your work and reaching your goals.

Running for president wasn’t an easy decision for us as a family—especially for Michelle. But one thing pushed us toward taking the leap:

Here are some of my favorite songs of the year. As usual, I had some valuable consultation from our family music guru, Sasha, to put this together. I hope you find a new song or two to listen to.

Like everyone else, we were stuck inside a lot this year, and with streaming further blurring the lines between theatrical movies and television features, I’ve expanded the list to include visual storytelling that I’ve enjoyed this year, regardless of format.

As 2020 comes to a close, I wanted to share my annual lists of favorites. I’ll start by sharing my favorite books this year, deliberately omitting what I think is a pretty good book – A Promised Land – by a certain 44th president. I hope you enjoy reading these as much as I did.

I had some fun answering questions about #APromisedLand for BookTube. I talked to creators about everything from fatherhood, to celebrating science at the White House, to the role strong women played in my life. You can watch the full episode on @YouTube.

One of my proudest achievements while in office was passing the Affordable Care Act. It helped more than 20 million people gain healthcare, cut the uninsured rate in half, covered people with preexisting conditions, and more.

As I recount in #APromisedLand, I owe pretty much everything I am to the women in my life. They helped make me become a better leader, a better father, and a better man.

Over the next few weeks, I’ll be sharing more about some of the moments in my book from the first few years of my presidency. I’ll start with our work to pass the Recovery Act and dig the country out of an economic hole that threatened another Great Depression. Just like what President-Elect Biden is facing right now, we didn’t have the luxury of time. We had to act swiftly to help families and the economy. So here’s how we moved forward—and helped pave the way for the longest streak of job creation in American history. #APromisedLand

We started the @ObamaFoundation to help a new generation build a better tomorrow. And many of them already are, stepping up through the pandemic and protests to demand real change. On Giving Tuesday, I'm asking you to invest in them: Obama.org/donate

While in office, one of our family’s traditions was visiting a couple of nearby small businesses for Small Business Saturday—and we’d always make a stop at a bookstore to find some books to read for the holidays. Although everyone’s traditions might look different this year, we can still find ways to support these terrific small businesses. So I hope you’ll take a minute to order a book online from an independent bookstore near you.

Chicago is the city that shaped us – and that's why I was excited to drop in to surprise @ChiPubSchools high school students with free digital copies of #APromisedLand. Looking forward to talking to these students in the new year for a virtual book club discussion!

Over the years, I’ve gotten a lot of questions about my writing process. Here’s how I approached it for A Promised Land:

We all can play a role in shaping a better world. It’s something I talk about in A Promised Land, and a challenge I know that a new generation of leaders will meet with courage and determination. Tonight, I’ll be talking to a few of these young people from the @MBK_Alliance network who are looking after their own communities even as they chart their own path. We’ll talk about ways each of us can help rebuild our democracy and work toward a more just future. I hope you’ll tune in tonight on MSNBC.

I heard @twinsthenewtrend were listening to some of the songs on my A Promised Land playlist, so I decided to drop in and surprise them. We talked about a lot, from Bob Dylan to old-school mixtapes to the role music played in my memoir. #APromisedLand

Part of my goal in writing A Promised Land was to share my experience as President in promoting and advancing our shared international goals like increased freedom, human rights, and a mutual understanding of one another. For a long time, in many parts of the world, we’ve been on a trajectory of progress in these areas. But we’ve got to realize that democracy, better educational attainment, and rising prospects, especially for women—these things are not predestined. So I also wanted the book to be a call to all those who say that these are values and ideals worth fighting for; a reminder of what it takes to protect and further the gains we’ve made around the world.

I first met @Oprah while serving as an Illinois state senator in 2004, and she quickly became a friend and supporter of my first run for president. We recently sat down to talk about my memoir, A Promised Land—everything from my journey to elected office, my experience as the first Black president, and the impact that it had on my family over the years. #APromisedLand

My memoir, A Promised Land, is out today—and I’m proud of it. I hope you’ll read it. My goal was to give you some insight into the events, social and cultural forces, and people that shaped me during the early years of my presidency, along with a taste of what the experience was like for Michelle and our family during that time. Most of all, I hope it inspires you—no matter how old you are or where you’re from—to see yourself playing a role in shaping a better world.

Music has always played an important role throughout my life—and that was especially true during my presidency. While reviewing my notes ahead of debates, I’d listen to Jay-Z’s “My 1st Song” or Frank Sinatra’s “Luck Be a Lady.” Throughout our time in the White House, Michelle and I invited artists like Stevie Wonder and Gloria Estefan to conduct afternoon workshops with young people before performing an evening show in the East Room. And there were all sorts of performances I’ll always remember—like Beyoncé performing “At Last” for our first dance at our inauguration, Paul McCartney serenading Michelle in the East Room with, “Michelle" and Bob Dylan flashing me a grin before vanishing after his performance of “Times They Are a-Changin.” So in honor of my book coming out tomorrow, I thought I’d put together a playlist with some of those songs. Hope you enjoy it. #APromisedLand
