During National Family Week, we celebrate the many contributions families make to our country. Throughout America’s history, families have been the foundation of our society and a source of stability and love for every generation. Strong families teach children to live moral lives and help us pass down the values that define a caring society. By nurturing a child’s personal development and providing a safe environment for growth, families prepare our Nation’s youth to realize the promise of America. Family is one of the three cornerstones of the Helping America’s Youth initiative, led by First Lady Laura Bush. We are working with families, schools, and communities to help children make right choices and build healthy, successful lives. Through USA Freedom Corps, my Administration is also providing opportunities for families to volunteer together and make a positive difference in their communities. At this crucial hour in the history of freedom, our Nation is grateful for the sacrifice of our military families who love and support the men and women of our Armed Forces. My Administration is committed to providing a better quality of life for our military families and helping them plan for the future. During National Family Week and throughout the year, Americans stand solidly behind the men and women of our Armed Forces and join all military families as they pray for the safety and strength of their sons and daughters, husbands and wives, and fathers and mothers. 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 November 20 through November 26, 2005, as National Family Week. I invite the States, communities, and all the people of the United States to join together in observing this week with appropriate ceremonies and activities to honor our Nation’s families. IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this twenty-first day of November, in the year of our Lord two thousand five, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and thirtieth.

                Proclamation 7964 of November 21, 2005

                
National Family Week, 2005

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                Families give our society direction and purpose. During 
                National Family Week, we celebrate the many 
                contributions families make to our country.

                Throughout America's history, families have been the 
                foundation of our society and a source of stability and 
                love for every generation. Strong families teach 
                children to live moral lives and help us pass down the 
                values that define a caring society. By nurturing a 
                child's personal development and providing a safe 
                environment for growth, families prepare our Nation's 
                youth to realize the promise of America. Family is one 
                of the three cornerstones of the Helping America's 
                Youth initiative, led by First Lady Laura Bush. We are 
                working with families, schools, and communities to help 
                children make right choices and build healthy, 
                successful lives. Through USA Freedom Corps, my 
                Administration is also providing opportunities for 
                families to volunteer together and make a positive 
                difference in their communities.

                At this crucial hour in the history of freedom, our 
                Nation is grateful for the sacrifice of our military 
                families who love and support the men and women of our 
                Armed Forces. My Administration is committed to 
                providing a better quality of life for our military 
                families and helping them plan for the future. During 
                National Family Week and throughout the year, Americans 
                stand solidly behind the men and women of our Armed 
                Forces and join all military families as they pray for 
                the safety and strength of their sons and daughters, 
                husbands and wives, and fathers and mothers.

                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 November 20 through November 
                26, 2005, as National Family Week. I invite the States, 
                communities, and all the people of the United States to 
                join together in observing this week with appropriate 
                ceremonies and activities to honor our Nation's 
                families.

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