                Proclamation 8206 of November 16, 2007

                
National Family Week, 2007

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                As families gather together to celebrate Thanksgiving, 
                we underscore the comforting and positive role they 
                play in our society. During National Family Week, we 
                celebrate the contributions of families everywhere.

                Families strengthen our communities by teaching 
                important values such as compassion and honesty to 
                their children. Families also offer a supportive 
                environment and help ensure that children grow into 
                responsible members of society. By providing guidance 
                and unconditional love, parents shape the character of 
                their children.

                My Administration believes that the strength of our 
                Nation is built upon the foundation of strong families. 
                To help support families, we have doubled the child tax 
                credit, reduced the marriage penalty, and lowered tax 
                rates. We are also committed to promoting positive 
                youth development. The Helping America's Youth 
                initiative, led by First Lady Laura Bush, supports 
                organizations, including faith-based and community 
                groups, that continue this important mission.

                All Americans are grateful to our Nation's military 
                families, who have stood by their loved ones in times 
                of war and peace. Our country will always be especially 
                thankful for the sacrifices of our military personnel 
                and for their devotion to duty and their love of 
                country. During National Family Week, we pray for their 
                safe return and for the families who await them at 
                home.

                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 18 through November 
                24, 2007, 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.
