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, 1999] 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. <DOC> [Weekly Compilation of Presidential Documents] [frwais.access.gpo.gov] [Page 1821-1824] Monday, October 4, 1999 Volume 35--Number 39 Pages 1821-1886 Week Ending Friday, October 1, 1999 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.
