Former Senate Majority Leader Bob Dole accepted #Congress' highest civilian honor, the Congressional Gold Medal, for his #WorldWarII service and decades of work in the House and #Senate at the Capitol in #Washington on Wednesday.
.
"Bob Dole was known for his ability to work across the aisle and embrace practical bipartisanship," reads the legislation Trump signed in September. Some of the award's 300 recipients include George Washington and Mother Teresa, according to the Congressional Research Service.

"When ignorance and bigotry is allied with power, it is a dangerous force in our country. Your silence and your amnesia is complicity," said Senator @corybooker as he criticized the Homeland Security secretary for saying she can't recall President Donald #Trump using a certain vulgarity to describe African countries.
.
DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen told the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday that she couldn't remember the president using the word ascribed to him.
.
#CoryBooker said the words attributed to Trump cast a shadow over millions of Americans from those countries. He said the president's language can fester and give license to bigotry and hate in the country.

A man is arrested during a protest against Pope Francis in #Santiago, #Chile, on Tuesday. The pontiff is on a three-day visit to the country, where the Vatican's handling of sex abuse cases has fueled bitter criticism.
.
#PopeFrancis begged for forgiveness Tuesday for the "irreparable damage" done to children who were raped and molested by priests, opening his visit by diving head-first into a scandal that has greatly hurt the Catholic Church's credibility here and cast a cloud over his visit.

"Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. Hate multiplies hate, violence multiplies violence, and toughness multiplies toughness in a descending spiral of destruction." — Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
.
Born on Jan. 15, 1929, King's message of #nonviolence still resonates and inspires.
.
During the #civilrights movement, King directly confronted and exposed the ills of #racism, and led a movement that pressured the American government to end legalized #segregation. He spent the last year of his life condemning what he called the "triple evils" of racism, poverty and war.
.
King was assassinated April 4, 1968.
