                Proclamation 9321 of September 11, 2015

                
National Grandparents Day, 2015

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                Across America, grandparents are loving pillars of 
                comfort and support. After a lifetime of giving back to 
                their families and communities, grandmothers and 
                grandfathers continue to offer compassion and wisdom to 
                their loved ones and inspire us to be our best selves. 
                On National Grandparents Day, we honor the sacrifices 
                they make and continue to show our affection and 
                appreciation for them.

                We owe so much of who we are and what we have to our 
                grandparents. With grit and dedication, they helped 
                define a new age and open doors of opportunity for us 
                all. From overcoming the depths of economic collapse to 
                fighting to defend our liberty on battlefields around 
                the world, their determination to ensure we could live 
                better lives than they did helped secure our peace and 
                prosperity. They created the world's largest economy 
                and strongest middle class. They built skyscrapers, 
                made innovative advances, and charted new frontiers. 
                They broke down barriers and instilled fundamental 
                values and ideals. And the extraordinary example they 
                set in striving to forge a better future for their 
                families and our Nation reflects the idea that we are 
                all part of something larger than ourselves.

                Today, grandparents continue serving as quiet heroes in 
                every corner of our country. From reading bedtime 
                stories to their grandchildren to volunteering in their 
                communities to acting as primary caregivers, they work 
                hard each and every day while showing love and kindness 
                to their families and those around them. Let us 
                continue to show them the same, and let us forever 
                honor their tremendous efforts to nurture, guide, and 
                drive us in all we do.

                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 September 13, 2015, 
                as National Grandparents Day. I call upon all Americans 
                to take the time to honor their own grandparents and 
                those in their community.
