Proclamation 7226--Gold Star Mother's Day, 1999

September 24, 1999

By the President of the United States

of America

A Proclamation

    For generations, the brave men and women of our Armed Forces have 
answered our Nation's call to service. In the air, on the sea, and 
across the world's battlefields, they have fought with valor and 
determination so that we might continue to live in freedom. The 
blessings of liberty and peace we know today have been paid for with the 
lives of those who never returned home.
    The Gold Star Mothers of America know the price of freedom all too 
well. They have experienced one of life's greatest joys in becoming a 
parent and have endured one of life's greatest sorrows in losing a son 
or daughter. The spirit of sacrifices made by our fallen warriors lives 
on in the hearts of our Gold Star Mothers.
    Their sacrifice lives on as well in the work Gold Star Mothers 
perform in communities throughout our country, working with disabled 
veterans and their families, nurturing patriotism in a new generation of 
young Americans, reaching out to others who have lost a child in the 
service of our Nation, and ensuring that the contributions of their own 
sons and daughters are never forgotten. The generous and compassionate 
work of Gold Star Mothers is a powerful legacy of service that they 
carry on in loving memory of their children.
    We have a profound obligation to honor the service and sacrifice of 
these remarkable women as we honor their children. That is why the 
Congress, by Senate Joint Resolution 115 of June 23, 1936 (49 Stat. 
1895), has designated the last Sunday in September as ``Gold Star 
Mother's Day'' and authorized and requested the President to issue a 
proclamation in observance of this day.
    Now, Therefore, I, William J. Clinton, President of the United 
States of America, do hereby proclaim September 26, 1999, as Gold Star 
Mother's Day. I call on all government officials to display the United 
States flag on government buildings on this day. I also urge the 
American people to display the flag to hold appropriate meetings in 
their homes, places of worship, or other suitable places as a public 
expression of the sympathy and the respect that our Nation holds for its 
Gold Star Mothers.
    In Witness Whereof, I have hereunto set my hand this twenty-fourth 
day of September, in the year of our Lord nineteen hundred and ninety-
nine, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two 
hundred and twenty-fourth.
                                            William J. Clinton

[Filed with the Office of the Federal Register, 8:45 a.m., September 28, 

Note: This proclamation was published in the Federal Register on 
September 29. This item was not received in time for publication in the 
appropriate issue.

Remarks at a Democratic National Committee Dinner

September 24, 1999

    Thank you very much. Ladies and gentlemen, you can see I'm a little 
hoarse tonight. I lost my voice coming back from New Zealand; then I got 
it back today, and I'm losing it again. It's 10 o'clock on Friday night, 
and you've heard me give this speech before. [Laughter]
    I'll never forget, once I went to hear Tina Turner, that great 
political philosopher--[laughter]--in a concert, and she sang all of her 
new songs since she made her comeback, about 10 years ago. And then at 
the end she

[[Page 1822]]

started singing ``Proud Mary,'' which was her first hit 25 years ago. 
And everybody went nuts--25 years ago or 10 years ago--everybody went 
nuts. And they were clapping, and she walked up to the microphone and 
she said, ``I've been singing this song for 25 years. And it gets better 
every time I sing it.'' [Laughter]
    So I won't keep you long. But let me join the Vice President in 
thanking Bob and Arlene, Bob and Clarice for hosting this dinner. I 
always love to come back to this beautiful home; I've been coming here 
for years. I would never tire of it. I thank Lieutenant Governor 
Kathleen Kennedy-Townsend for being here, for being our friend, and for 
being, I believe, by any measure, the finest Lieutenant Governor in the 
United States--for her ideas and her actions. [Applause] Thank you.
    I thank Joe Andrew, Roy Romer, Beth Dozoretz, Andy Tobias, my good 
friend Mayor Archer, all the officials of the Democratic Party. And most 
of all, I thank you.
