National Child's Day, 2014

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                In the faces of today's children we see tomorrow's 
                leaders and innovators. Like their parents and 
                grandparents before them, they have the potential to 
                unearth new discoveries, pioneer bold inventions, and 
                unlock groundbreaking solutions to longstanding 
                problems. Every generation has sought to reach beyond 
                the limits of the known world and push the boundaries 
                of human imagination. But to realize what we know is 
                possible for our daughters and sons, we must harness 
                their talents and abilities. On National Child's Day, 
                we recognize that success is built on a foundation of 
                opportunity, and we continue our work to build a 
                society where every child can seize his or her future.

                Early education is one of the best investments we can 
                make in a child's life, and my Administration is 
                committed to expanding access to preschool and high-
                quality early learning across America. We are investing 
                in programs that enhance and expand infant and toddler 
                care in high-need communities, and next month, we will 
                host the White House Summit on Early Education, 
                bringing together a broad coalition of partners 
                dedicated to ensuring girls and boys can learn and 
                grow, regardless of who they are or where they come 
                from. In districts throughout our Nation, we are 
                strengthening our public schools and working to make 
                sure every child has the opportunity to reach higher.

                To succeed in the classroom and thrive in their 
                communities, all children deserve a healthy start in 
                life. That is why First Lady Michelle Obama's Let's 
                Move! initiative is working to make it easier for 
                parents and children to make healthy choices by 
                increasing the availability of nutritious foods and the 
                opportunities for physical activity. And I continue to 
                fight to provide the freedom and security of quality, 
                affordable health care to children and their families. 
                The Affordable Care Act prohibits insurance companies 
                from denying coverage to children with pre-existing 
                conditions and requires that most health plans cover 
                recommended preventive services for kids without 
                copays, including immunizations and developmental 
                screenings. Families who do not have health insurance 
                can visit www.HealthCare.gov to find coverage that fits 
                their needs and their budget.

                A world-class education and a robust health system are 
                essential pillars of a society devoted to ensuring 
                children can pursue their full measure of happiness--
                and we all must work together to lift up the next group 
                of thinkers and doers. As we celebrate the limitless 
                potential of a generation born in an era of tremendous 
                possibility, let us join with parents, professionals, 
                and community members and renew our commitment to 
                supporting the dreams of all our daughters and sons.

                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 November 20, 2014, as 
                National Child's Day. I call upon all citizens to 
                observe this day with appropriate activities, programs, 
                and ceremonies, and to rededicate ourselves to creating 
                the bright future we want for our Nation's children.
