                Proclamation 7878 of April 1, 2005

                
National Child Abuse Prevention Month, 2005

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                Our Nation has a responsibility to build a safe and 
                nurturing society so that our young people can realize 
                their full potential. During National Child Abuse 
                Prevention Month, we renew our commitment to preventing 
                child abuse and rededicate ourselves to working 
                together to ensure that all children can have a bright 
                and hopeful future.

                Creating a protective environment for our young people 
                requires the shared commitment of individuals, 
                families, and faith-based and community organizations. 
                Parents and family members are the first and most 
                important influence in a child's life. A safe and 
                stable family can provide children with a foundation of 
                love and security that encourages positive growth and 
                development. Federal, State, and local government 
                officials can also improve the lives of our young 
                people by doing all they can to keep children safe from 
                harm.

                Together, we can protect our future generations so that 
                they can realize the opportunities of our Nation. By 
                providing help and hope to our young people, we will 
                build a better and more compassionate world for our 
                children and grandchildren.

                NOW, THEREFORE, I, GEORGE W. BUSH, President of the 
                United States of America, by virtue of the authority 
                vested in me by the Constitution and laws of the United 
                States, do hereby proclaim April 2005 as National Child 
                Abuse Prevention Month. I encourage all Americans to 
                protect our children from abuse and neglect and to help 
                ensure that every child can grow up in a secure and 
                loving environment.

                IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this 
                first day of April, in the year of our Lord two 
                thousand five, and of the Independence of the United 
                States of America the two hundred and twenty-ninth.
