All of us—parents, families, teachers, mentors, and community members—have a responsibility to children to honor and pass along the values that sustain a free society. By spending time with a young person, adults can help our Nation’s youth to make the right choices. On National Child’s Day, we underscore our commitment to supporting children and to helping them realize a bright and hopeful future. Family is the most important influence in a child’s life. Parents are teachers, disciplinarians, advisors, and role models. By providing hope and stability, parents help children to understand the consequences of their actions and to recognize that the decisions they make today can affect the rest of their lives. Through initiatives that promote healthy marriages, responsible fatherhood, and adoption and foster care programs, my Administration is helping to ensure that more young people have a foundation of love and support. Teachers also make a real difference in children’s lives. America’s educators help our students build character and acquire the skills and knowledge they need to succeed as adults. My Administration is insisting upon accountability in our public schools. We want every child to have an opportunity to realize the great promise of our country. By mentoring children and helping them to achieve their dreams, Americans can fill their own lives with greater purpose and help make our country a better place. Our children benefit from a sense of community, and each of us has the power to make a difference in a child’s life. I have introduced the Helping America’s Youth initiative, led by First Lady Laura Bush, so that every child can grow up with a caring adult in his or her life— whether that adult is a parent, a teacher, a coach, or a mentor. I encourage all Americans to volunteer their time and talents to benefit our Nation’s youth. 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 June 5, 2005, as National Child’s Day, and I call upon citizens to observe this day with appropriate ceremonies and activities. I also urge all Americans to dedicate their time and talents toward helping our Nation’s young people so that all children may reach as far as their vision and character can take them.

                Proclamation 7909 of June 3, 2005

                
National Child's Day, 2005

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                Children are the future of our country and America's 
                next generation of leaders. All of us--parents, 
                families, teachers, mentors, and community members--
                have a responsibility to children to honor and pass 
                along the values that sustain a free society. By 
                spending time with a young person, adults can help our 
                Nation's youth to make the right choices. On National 
                Child's Day, we underscore our commitment to supporting 
                children and to helping them realize a bright and 
                hopeful future.

                Family is the most important influence in a child's 
                life. Parents are teachers, disciplinarians, advisors, 
                and role models. By providing hope and stability, 
                parents help children to understand the consequences of 
                their actions and to recognize that the decisions they 
                make today can affect the rest of their lives. Through 
                initiatives that promote healthy marriages, responsible 
                fatherhood, and adoption and foster care programs, my 
                Administration is helping to ensure that more young 
                people have a foundation of love and support.

                Teachers also make a real difference in children's 
                lives. America's educators help our students build 
                character and acquire the skills and knowledge they 
                need to succeed as adults. My Administration is 
                insisting upon accountability in our public schools. We 
                want every child to have an opportunity to realize the 
                great promise of our country.

                By mentoring children and helping them to achieve their 
                dreams, Americans can fill their own lives with greater 
                purpose and help make our country a better place. Our 
                children benefit from a sense of community, and each of 
                us has the power to make a difference in a child's 
                life. I have introduced the Helping America's Youth 
                initiative, led by First Lady Laura Bush, so that every 
                child can grow up with a caring adult in his or her 
                life--whether that adult is a parent, a teacher, a 
                coach, or a mentor. I encourage all Americans to 
                volunteer their time and talents to benefit our 
                Nation's youth.

                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 June 5, 2005, as National 
                Child's Day, and I call upon citizens to observe this 
                day with appropriate ceremonies and activities. I also 
                urge all Americans to dedicate their time and talents 
                toward helping our Nation's young people so that all 
                children may reach as far as their vision and character 
                can take them.

                IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this 
                third day of June, 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.
