                Proclamation 8084 of November 16, 2006

                
National Family Week, 2006

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                Families are indispensable to a stable and free 
                society. They pass along the traditions and principles 
                that help make America compassionate, decent, and 
                hopeful. During National Family Week, we honor our 
                families and recognize their contributions to keeping 
                our country strong.

                Today's fast-changing world needs the anchor of values 
                and virtues that families can provide. Strong families 
                instill responsibility and character in our children 
                and teach them the ideals that make us a great Nation. 
                Through their love and sacrifice, America's parents, 
                grandparents, aunts, uncles, siblings, and other family 
                members help prepare our young people to realize the 
                bright future America offers each child.

                My Administration is committed to ensuring that our 
                children grow up in loving, stable homes. Earlier this 
                year, I signed legislation that creates new grants for 
                faith-based and community organizations to support 
                healthy marriages and responsible fatherhood. By 
                reducing the marriage penalty and doubling the child 
                tax credit, we have also provided important tax relief 
                that helps parents to support and provide for their 
                families.

                During National Family Week and throughout the year, we 
                also extend our appreciation and support to our 
                courageous military families, who have borne the 
                hardships of war with dignity and devotion. Our Nation 
                has remained strong and free because the brave men and 
                women of our Armed Forces defend this country and our 
                beliefs. By supporting their loved ones in uniform, our 
                military families are also serving our country, and 
                America is grateful for their service and sacrifice.

                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 19 through November 
                25, 2006, 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.
