                Proclamation 9198 of October 24, 2014

                
United Nations Day, 2014

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                In 1945, in the shadow of a world war and the face of 
                an uncertain future, 51 founding nations joined in 
                common purpose to establish the United Nations and 
                codify its mission to maintain international peace and 
                security, encourage global cooperation, and promote 
                universal respect for human rights. Nearly seven 
                decades later, we once again find ourselves at a 
                pivotal moment in history--a crossroads between 
                conflict and peace, disorder and integration, hatred 
                and dignity--dealing with new challenges that require a 
                united response. As we confront these global problems 
                in an increasingly interconnected world, the United 
                Nations remains as necessary and vital as ever. On 
                United Nations Day, we recognize the important role the 
                United Nations continues to play in the international 
                system, and we reaffirm our country's commitment to 
                work with all nations to build a world that is more 
                just, more peaceful, and more free.

                The United Nations fosters international cooperation 
                and enables progress on the world's most immediate 
                threats and critical long-term challenges. From 
                addressing climate change and eradicating poverty to 
                preventing armed conflict and halting the proliferation 
                of weapons of mass destruction, the work of the United 
                Nations supports our shared pursuit of a better world. 
                In this spirit of mutual interest and mutual respect, 
                the international community must continue to find 
                common ground in the face of threats to the prosperity 
                and security of all our nations.

                Across the globe, United Nations personnel put their 
                lives on the line to give meaning and action to the 
                simple truths enshrined in the United Nations Charter. 
                Today, U.N. humanitarian staff are providing lifesaving 
                relief to those trapped by conflict; U.N. peacekeepers 
                are protecting civilians against threats from 
                extremists and other violent groups; and U.N. health 
                workers are helping to bring Ebola under control in 
                West Africa and deliver critical medicines to people 
                around the world. Their dedication, hard work, and 
                sacrifice reflect the promise of the United Nations and 
                the best of the human spirit.

                On this day, let us resolve to strengthen and renew the 
                United Nations. Let us choose hope over fear, 
                collaboration over division, and humanity over 
                brutality, as we work together to build a tomorrow 
                marked by progress rather than suffering. Our diplomacy 
                can build the foundation for peace and our cooperation 
                can be the catalyst for growth. By harnessing the power 
                of the United Nations, we can build a more peaceful and 
                more prosperous future for all our children and 
                grandchildren.

                NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the 
                United States of America, by virtue of the authority 
                vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the 
                United States, do hereby proclaim October 24, 2014, as 
                United Nations Day. I urge the Governors of the 50 
                States, and the officials of all other areas under the 
                flag of the United States, to observe United Nations 
                Day with appropriate ceremonies and activities.

                United States of America the two hundred and thirty-
