                Proclamation 7931 of September 16, 2005

                
National Hispanic Heritage Month, 2005

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                Throughout our history, America has been a land of 
                diversity and has benefitted from the contributions of 
                people of different backgrounds brought together by a 
                love of liberty. During National Hispanic Heritage 
                Month, we celebrate the achievements of Hispanic 
                Americans and the significant role they have played in 
                making our Nation strong, prosperous, and free.

                The contributions of Hispanic Americans have made a 
                positive impact on every part of our society. Americans 
                of Hispanic descent are astronauts and athletes, 
                doctors and teachers, lawyers and scientists. The 
                vibrancy of our Nation's Hispanic performers enriches 
                music, dancing, and the arts. Hispanic Americans serve 
                at every level of government, including as Attorney 
                General of the United States and Secretary of Commerce. 
                Latino entrepreneurs are starting and growing 
                businesses all across America, creating jobs and 
                opportunities. The hard work and determination of 
                Hispanic Americans continue to inspire all those who 
                dream of a better life for themselves and their 
                families.

                Our Nation's Hispanic community has contributed to the 
                advance of freedom abroad and to the defense of freedom 
                at home. In every generation, Hispanic Americans have 
                served valiantly in the United States military. Today 
                there are more than 200,000 Hispanic Americans serving 
                in the Armed Forces, and our Nation is grateful for 
                their courage and sacrifice. In addition, thousands of 
                Hispanic Americans are helping to defend and protect 
                our homeland by serving as police officers and 
                firefighters. All Americans are thankful for their 
                daily work in helping to keep our Nation safe.

                During National Hispanic Heritage Month, we join 
                together to recognize the proud history and rich 
                culture of Hispanic Americans. To honor the 
                achievements of Hispanic Americans, the Congress, by 
                Public Law 100-402, as amended, has authorized and 
                requested the President to issue annually a 
                proclamation designating September 15 through October 
                15 as ``National Hispanic Heritage Month.''

                NOW, THEREFORE, I, GEORGE W. BUSH, President of the 
                United States of America, do hereby proclaim September 
                15 through October 15, 2005, as National Hispanic 
                Heritage Month. I call upon public officials, 
                educators, librarians, and all the people of the United 
                States to observe this month with appropriate 
                ceremonies, activities, and programs.

                IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this 
                sixteenth day of September, in the year of our Lord two 
                thousand five, and of the Independence of the United 
                States of America the two hundred and thirtieth.
