                Proclamation 7891 of April 29, 2005

                
Law Day, U.S.A., 2005

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                The American legal system helps preserve our 
                constitutional principles and ensures justice for all 
                our citizens. As we celebrate Law Day, we recognize our 
                Nation's commitment to the rule of law and the rights 
                and privileges that all Americans share.

                President Eisenhower established Law Day in 1958 to pay 
                tribute to our heritage of liberty, justice, and 
                equality under the law. Each year on Law Day, we 
                recognize our Nation's commitment to a fair legal 
                system and to protecting the rights and freedoms we 
                cherish.

                The theme of this year's Law Day, ``The American Jury: 
                We the People in Action,'' recognizes the imperative of 
                self-government and the necessity of individuals' 
                participation in the judicial process. By taking time 
                away from their day-to-day responsibilities to serve on 
                juries, Americans demonstrate their commitment to good 
                citizenship and their willingness to uphold the laws of 
                our Nation.

                Since our founding, the jury has been a fundamental 
                institution in American law and a pillar of our 
                democracy. As we celebrate Law Day this year, we honor 
                the continued role of the jury as a foundation of our 
                legal system, and express our appreciation to all 
                Americans who serve on juries.

                NOW, THEREFORE, I, GEORGE W. BUSH, President of the 
                United States of America, in accordance with Public Law 
                87-20, as amended, do hereby proclaim May 1, 2005, as 
                Law Day, U.S.A. I also encourage Americans to observe 
                May 1 through May 7, 2005, as National Juror 
                Appreciation Week. I call upon the people of the United 
                States to acknowledge the importance of our Nation's 
                legal and judicial systems with appropriate ceremonies 
                and activities, and to display the flag of the United 
                States in support of this national observance.

                IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this 
                twenty-ninth 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.
