Proclamation 7510--World AIDS Day, 2001

 November 30, 2001

 By the President of the United States

 of America

 A Proclamation

    This year marks the 20th year that the world has been fighting the 
disease that we now know as Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS). 
AIDS has inflicted a terrible toll upon the world, taking millions of 
lives and causing untold grief to the families and friends of its 
victims. An estimated 40 million people worldwide are living with the 
Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV), which causes AIDS; and more than 
8,000 people across the globe die from AIDS every day. Sadly, since its 
inception, AIDS has claimed the lives of more than 22 million 
    This year's World AIDS Day theme is ``I Care . . . Do You? Youth and 
AIDS in the 21st Century.'' The goal underscoring this year's theme is 
ensuring greater education and involvement of young people in preventing 
HIV/AIDS. And it seeks to stress that every individual has both the 
responsibility and the opportunity to help prevent the spread of HIV/
AIDS and to assist those suffering from the disease.
    In many countries, including the United States, young people and 
adolescents are at a higher risk for contracting HIV infection. We know 
from epidemiological data that young people under the age of 25 comprise 
half of all new HIV infections worldwide. This sobering reality is a 
clarion call to public health networks around the world to redouble 
their efforts in providing information to young people about preventing 
HIV/AIDS, and most importantly, about abstinence and how it can help to 
prevent the spread of this disease.
    The AIDS epidemic has had a devastating impact on diverse 
communities, and disadvantaged youth have borne the brunt of this 
devastation. Impoverished conditions and depressed economic 
circumstances tend to accompany an increased presence of HIV in these 
communities. We must develop and implement better ways to communicate to 
youth about abstinence and other effective measures that will help them 
to avoid the disease and to envision a future filled with possibility.
    We must also continue our efforts to develop a vaccine that will 
protect individuals from becoming infected with HIV. Our children 
deserve to live in a world free from the fear of HIV/AIDS, and the 
United States will not weaken in its resolve to lead the world towards 
that goal.
    As we enter the third decade of the AIDS pandemic, our hearts go out 
to those who have been afflicted with or affected by this deadly 
disease. We resolve to stand together as a Nation and with the world to 
fight AIDS on all fronts. We resolve to provide the resources necessary 
to combat HIV/AIDS. And we resolve to ensure that those suffering with 
HIV/AIDS receive effective care and treatment, compassionate 
understanding, and encouraging hope.
     Now, Therefore, I, George W. Bush,  President of the United States 
of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution 
and laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim December 1, 2001, as 
World AIDS Day. I invite the Governors of the States and the 
Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, officials of the other territories subject 
to the jurisdiction of the United States, and the American people to 
join me in reaffirming our commitment to combat HIV/AIDS. I encourage 
every American to participate in appropriate commemorative programs and 
ceremonies in workplaces, houses of worship, and other community centers 
to reach out and protect and

educate our children, and to help comfort all people who are living with 
     In Witness Whereof,  I have hereunto set my hand this thirtieth day 
of November, in the year of our Lord two thousand one, and of the 
Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and twenty-
                                                George W. Bush

 [Filed with the Office of the Federal Register, 8:45 a.m., December 4,

December 5. This item was not received in time for publication in the

The President's Radio Address

December 1, 2001

    Good morning. This week, the official announcement came that our 
economy has been in recession since March. And unfortunately, to a lot 
of Americans, that news comes as no surprise. Many have lost jobs or 
seen their hours cut. Many have seen friends or family laid off.
    The long economic expansion that started 10 years ago, in 1991, 
began to slow last year. Many economists warned me when I took office 
that a recession was beginning, so we took quick action. We passed the 
biggest tax cut in a generation, and we imposed some much needed 
discipline on Federal spending. And by the end of the summer, we could 
see signs that the economy was responding.
    But the terrorist attacks of September the 11th hit our economy 
hard. They hurt our airlines and hotels and restaurants and undermined 
consumer and business confidence. Now we need to act boldly to protect 
America's economic security. There are two immediate priorities for 
America's recovery: We must bring quick help to those who need it most, 
and we must restore our economy's growth.
    It's the holiday season. It's a time to reach out to Americans who 
are hurting, to help them put food on the table, and to keep a roof over 
their heads. I've offered a plan to provide immediate assistance to 
those who have lost their jobs in the wake of the terrorist attack. My 
plan extends unemployment compensation by 13 weeks in the States hardest 
hit by terrorism. My plan helps States offer Medicaid to uninsured 
workers in need and their families. And my plan offers emergency grants 
to States to help displaced workers get job training and find new work 
and continue their health insurance--practical help in a difficult time.
    And I'm working with congressional leaders on more ideas to help 
Americans who have lost their jobs. In the long run, the right answer to 
unemployment is to create more jobs. I have proposed a package of job 
creating measures. I've asked Congress for tax relief for low- and 
moderate-income people to put more money into the hands of consumers and 
to put people to work making things that consumers want. I have proposed 
we lower taxes on employers who buy new equipment to expand their 
business and hire more people.
    We should reform our tax laws so that employers don't pay more taxes 
as their profits shrink. And I propose we speed up the income tax cuts 
Congress passed in the spring so that people can keep more of their own 
money to spend or pay their debts.
    I asked for this job creation package on October the 5th. The House 
of Representatives responded swiftly. Yet I'm still waiting for a bill 
to sign, and more importantly, so are more than 415,000 Americans who 
have lost their jobs since then.
    You know, after September the 11th my administration and the 
Congress made a conscious decision to show the terrorists we could work 
together. We had an obligation to show that democracy works. We've done 
that. And now we need to do it again by helping dislocated workers and 
spurring economic growth.
    Thank you for listening.
