Honoring the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. PDF Print

This weekend, Americans of every race and background will take a moment to remember one of our nation’s great leaders, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. We do so with good reason. Throughout his short life, Dr. King overcame adversity to inspire our nation during one of the most tumultuous eras in our history. He led by example, stepping above the racism and violence he encountered, and responding with peaceful tactics and powerful words to influence change at a time when change seemed impossible.

Dr. King had a dream which he described in his famous speech in front of the Lincoln Memorial, not far from the memorial that now bears his name. But he also helped America realize its own dream, the principle in our founding documents, of equality under the law. And yet, there is still much work to do.

Every day, my congressional office is working to help constituents solve problems or overcome government obstacles on issues that may not make headlines, but have a huge impact on their lives.

We are a nation of builders and innovators. Harnessing that creative energy, manufacturing created a middle class that strengthened our communities and provided opportunity for countless Americans. Manufacturing helped make the middle class. In fact, manufacturing jobs have a larger multiplier effect than any other industry. For every $1.00 spent in manufacturing, another $1.48 is added to the economy.

Across Ohio, I meet with manufacturers who understand the opportunities that are being created in Ohio’s clean energy economy. Ohio has the fifth-highest number of clean energy jobs in the nation, with more than 29,000 of them in manufacturing.

Last week, I traveled to schools around the state to hear from students, nurses, parents, and health professionals about what severe allergic reactions can mean when they occur unexpectedly in a classroom, playground, or sports field. These severe allergic reactions – known as anaphylaxis – can occur within minutes of exposure to any allergen. The most common allergens that cause anaphylactic shock are food, insect stings, and medications.
