Bill Clinton Statement on the Passing of Representative John Murtha

Jack Murtha was a true patriot, a good man, and one of the most effective members of Congress. As the first Vietnam combat veteran elected to Congress, he became a champion for all men and women in uniform, and a respected voice in national defense. In 1996, I asked him to co-chair a U.S. delegation to ensure the fairness and openness of the first post-war election in Bosnia. At home, he worked hard to bring jobs, high tech industry, and quality health care to his own district in western Pennsylvania and to people in small towns all over America. I am grateful for his service, his friendship, and his steadfast support for Hillary and me. We loved him and we will miss him. Our prayers are with his wife Joyce, their children and grandchildren and the people of Pennsylvania he so proudly served for 36 years.

Bill Clinton Just arrived in Port-au-Prince

Flying into Port-au-Prince for the second time since the earthquake -- I was pleased to see continued signs of an expanding relief effort.

Today, I'll help my team deliver the emergency supplies we brought with us on our plane.

Donation by donation, it's the generosity of people like you that is keeping this relief effort going. And your continued dedication is what will make sure the Haitian people have the tools and supplies they need to rebuild.

I am so grateful that you have responded to this devastating crisis.

As you read this, work is underway to deliver meals, set up temporary shelters, and restore access to health services for earthquake survivors. I'm proud that today we were able to deliver laptops, generators, plastic sheeting, protein bars, and 1,900 lbs of medical supplies.

And it's not going to stop there.

Long after the television crews have gone and emergency response teams have returned to their home countries, I can promise you the Clinton Foundation will remain committed to Haiti's long-term rebuilding and recovery.

We will work with reputable organizations, the Haitian government, and most importantly the people of Haiti to ensure that they are empowered to create more opportunities for jobs, education, and health care than existed the day before this tragedy occurred.

There is a Haitian proverb, "Men anpil chay pa lou," which translates as "Many hands lighten the load."

It's going to take a lot of help and a long time, but I know that together you and I can lighten the load that the Haitian people have carried on their own for far too long.

Thank you for being part of that work with me today. I'll continue to be in touch as our work continues here in Port-au-Prince and beyond.

Bill Clinton

PS. Only with your continued generosity will we be able to sustain these efforts. Please make a donation of any size today:
