Our country has long appreciated and benefited from the contributions women have made to empowering and inspiring not only those under their roofs, but those in our schools, communities, governments, and businesses. Our Nation’s mothers are steadfast during times of heartbreak and hardship, triumph and accomplishment. They are unwavering examples of strength and resilience. In times of uncertainty and despair, they are our steady compasses, providing wisdom and guidance along the way. In times of success and joy, they are our most ardent supporters, cheering us to evergreater heights. Mothers are our tireless advocates, always recognizing our gifts and talents, and helping us achieve our full potential. On Mother’s Day, we also pause to remember the women who are no longer with us. Their indelible spirits live on in the character of the generations they helped shape. We can see this in the inspiring legacy of First Lady Barbara Pierce Bush. As a selfless wife, mother, grandmother, greatgrandmother, military spouse, and First Lady, Mrs. Bush was a fierce advocate for the American family. Her resolute faith, love, and loyalty is forever etched into the heart of our Nation. Today, and every day, let us express our utmost respect, admiration, and appreciation for our mothers who have given us the sacred gifts of life and unconditional love. In all that they do, mothers influence their families, their communities, our Nation, and our world.

                Proclamation 9749 of May 11, 2018

                
Mother's Day, 2018

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                Mother's Day is a very special occasion and opportunity 
                to express our endless gratitude to the women who give 
                their unyielding love and devotion to their families, 
                and their unending sacrifices to guide, protect, and 
                nurture the success of their children. Our country has 
                long appreciated and benefited from the contributions 
                women have made to empowering and inspiring not only 
                those under their roofs, but those in our schools, 
                communities, governments, and businesses.

                Our Nation's mothers are steadfast during times of 
                heartbreak and hardship, triumph and accomplishment. 
                They are unwavering examples of strength and 
                resilience. In times of uncertainty and despair, they 
                are our steady compasses, providing wisdom and guidance 
                along the way. In times of success and joy, they are 
                our most ardent supporters, cheering us to ever-greater 
                heights. Mothers are our tireless advocates, always 
                recognizing our gifts and talents, and helping us 
                achieve our full potential.

                On Mother's Day, we also pause to remember the women 
                who are no longer with us. Their indelible spirits live 
                on in the character of the generations they helped 
                shape. We can see this in the inspiring legacy of First 
                Lady Barbara Pierce Bush. As a selfless wife, mother, 
                grandmother, great-grandmother, military spouse, and 
                First Lady, Mrs. Bush was a fierce advocate for the 
                American family. Her resolute faith, love, and loyalty 
                is forever etched into the heart of our Nation.

                Today, and every day, let us express our utmost 
                respect, admiration, and appreciation for our mothers 
                who have given us the sacred gifts of life and 
                unconditional love. In all that they do, mothers 
                influence their families, their communities, our 
                Nation, and our world. Whether we became their children 
                through birth, adoption, or foster care, we know the 
                unmatched power of the love, dedication, devotion, and 
                wisdom of our mothers.

                In recognition of the contributions of mothers to 
                American families and to our Nation, the Congress, by 
                joint resolution approved May 8, 1914 (38 Stat. 770), 
                has designated the second Sunday in May each year as 
                Mother's Day, and requested the President to call for 
                its appropriate observance.

                NOW, THEREFORE, I, DONALD J. TRUMP, 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 May 13, 2018, as 
                Mother's Day. I encourage all Americans to express 
                their love and respect for their mothers or beloved 
                mother figures, whether with us in person or in spirit, 
                and to reflect on the importance of motherhood to the 
                prosperity of our families, communities, and Nation.
