When I had my early tour today of the @NMAAHC, I was struck by all the men and women still hard at work on the museum, its exhibits and still the building itself. They are unsung heroes - won't necessarily be specific tributes to their labor, their professionalism or hard work, but they deserve our gratitude and acknowledgment. I talked to a number of the workers as I moved through the museum and thanked them for their contributions. I was struck by the sense of pride many of them showed in their labors and in that historic place itself. I want to thank all the hands that labored to bring about this museum's opening, they may not be physically present when President Obama cuts the ribbon, but their contributions will live on for generations to come as millions pass through this museum and reap the benefits of their work. I am pictured here with Michael Crum and Richard Taylor. I am grateful that they consented to having their picture taken. They may be in the background but without them and others our history wouldn't be front and center on the National Mall. (Photo credit: @nanagyesie) #APeoplesJourney #NMAAHC
