                Proclamation 8073 of October 20, 2006

                
United Nations Day, 2006

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                On October 24, 1945, the United Nations was formed to 
                promote peace and international security, further 
                economic and social development, protect fundamental 
                human dignity, and recognize the equal rights of men 
                and women. On United Nations Day, we recognize the 
                establishment of this important organization and 
                underscore our commitment to making the world free and 
                secure.

                The United Nations was built on the idea that nations 
                can act together to resolve conflict, and in the more 
                than six decades since it was formed, the United 
                Nations has addressed significant international 
                challenges. With 192 member countries, the United 
                Nations works to promote freedom, expand opportunity, 
                and reach out to those in need.

                Today, as we work to combat extremism and terror with 
                justice and dignity, the efforts of the United Nations 
                are as vital as ever. The world needs the members of 
                the United Nations to stand together to help the 
                organization live up to its founding ideals, fulfill 
                its mission, and spread hope and liberty to people 
                around the globe. Together, we can combat terrorism, 
                help empower the voices of moderation, fight disease, 
                and work for a world where all people are free to 
                determine their own destinies.

                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 October 24, 2006, as United 
                Nations Day. I urge the Governors of the 50 States, the 
                Governor of the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, and the 
                officials of other areas under the flag of the United 
                States to observe United Nations Day with appropriate 
                ceremonies and activities.

                IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this 
                twentieth day of October, in the year of our Lord two 
                thousand six, and of the Independence of the United 
                States of America the two hundred and thirty-first.
