National Child's Day
National Child's Day is observed next on Sunday, June 4th, 2023 (119 days from today).
Our children, who are today dreaming big and hopeful dreams, will one day become leaders in government, industry, education and the arts. For the sake of our country and its continued growth and progress, we must strive to give all young Americans the best possible start in life.
Between Mother's Day and Father's Day, this year, National Child's Day is celebrated on June 3rd, the first Sunday of the month. This special occasion offers us a unique opportunity to recall the joys and surprises of our own childhood and to reflect on the positive and healthy experiences of the early years of a person significantly affects later achievement and happiness.
All adults have to work together to ensure the safety and well-being for our children, our nation's most precious resource. Every child deserves to live in a safe, long-lasting and well-cared for family; but, unfortunately, this is not always the case. Government cannot make people love each other, but it can and must create an environment that helps families, as well as the individuals and groups that support them.
Our nation must reaffirm our commitment to love and care for our children. We must improve school and neighborhood safety and mobilize community and faith-based groups to fight poverty and addiction. As many young people today grow up in single-parent homes, we must promote responsible fatherhood, in all aspects, including spiritual leadership, emotional security, and support financial aid. We must also help families in crisis, protect children from abuse and neglect, and encourage the adoption of children who have been separated from their biological parents.
However, our responsibility to our young people goes beyond just their physical and emotional well-being. We must also provide them with a quality education, so that no child is left behind in our rapidly growing global economy. Adults should also encourage teens to aim high, make the right choices, and participate in their communities. That way, boys and girls can pursue meaningful and fulfilling lives as contributing members of society.
Every kid in each neighborhood has unique gifts to give. We must nurture children's dreams, help them develop their talents and abilities, and ensure their healthy development so that they can reach their full potential. Our success in this important endeavor will influence the direction of their lives and the future strength and vitality of our nation.
In recognition of the importance of the children of our Fatherland, the Senate, in accordance with Senate Resolution 90 passed on May 25th, 2001, designated June 3rd, 2001, as " National Child's Day." members" and asked the President to issue a Statement calling for appropriate ceremonies and activities.
Therefore, now, GEORGE W. BUSH, President of the United States of America, with the authority conferred upon me by the Constitution and laws of the United States, hereby proclaims June 3rd, 2001 as National Child's Day. I encourage all Americans to share in the mission of preparing our young people for the challenges and opportunities in life. By reading to young people, listening to their concerns and concerns, and providing them with safe and loving homes, we can make a positive and lasting contribution to the health, happiness and well-being of our youth and well-being.
In witness of that, I lay my hands on this second day of June, in the year of our Lord two thousand and one, and on the two hundred and twenty-fifth Independence Day of the United States of America.
