                Proclamation 8561 of September 15, 2010

                
National Hispanic Heritage Month, 2010

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                From the early settlers of the New World to those 
                reaching for the American dream today, Hispanics have 
                shaped and strengthened our country. During National 
                Hispanic Heritage Month, we pause to celebrate the 
                immeasurable contributions these individuals have made 
                to our Nation--from its inception to its latest 
                chapters.

                Reflecting the remarkable diversity of the American 
                people, Hispanics represent a wide range of 
                nationalities and backgrounds. Like so many Americans, 
                Hispanics have overcome great obstacles to persevere 
                and flourish in every sector of our society. With 
                enduring values of faith and family, hard work and 
                sacrifice, Hispanics have preserved the rich heritage 
                of generations past while contributing mightily to the 
                promise of our Nation for their children and 
                grandchildren.

                Hispanics are leaders in all aspects of our national 
                life, from the Supreme Court and halls of Congress to 
                boardrooms and Main Streets. Across America, Hispanics 
                protect neighborhoods as police officers and first 
                responders, guide young people as teachers and mentors, 
                and boost economic growth as business owners and 
                operators. As members of the Armed Forces, heroic 
                Hispanic men and women have also fought and died to 
                defend the liberties and security of the United States 
                in every war since the American Revolution, many 
                serving before becoming American citizens.

                This month, we honor Hispanics for enriching the fabric 
                of America, even as we recognize and rededicate 
                ourselves to addressing the challenges to equality and 
                opportunity that many Hispanics still face. In 
                reflecting on our Nation's rich Hispanic heritage, let 
                us take pride in our unique and vibrant history, and 
                recommit to a shared future of freedom, prosperity, and 
                opportunity for all.

                To mark the achievements of Hispanics in the United 
                States, 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, BARACK OBAMA, President of the 
                United States of America, do hereby proclaim September 
                15 through October 15, 2010, 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 
                fifteenth day of September, in the year of our Lord two 
                thousand ten, and of the Independence of the United 
                States of America the two hundred and thirty-fifth.
