Remarks Honoring the NCAA Champion Lake Superior State University Hockey 

May 6, 1994

    Good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen. Just minutes before his team 
took the ice against the Russians--and some of these young people were 
too young to remember that thrilling Olympic victory in 1980--but Herb 
Brooks told his team that they were born to play the game. He said, 
``You were meant to be here at this time. This is your moment.''
    Well, Senator Levin and Congressman Stupak, I thank you for your 
help in making this event possible. And today I say to the players, the 
coaches, and the other supporters of the Lake Superior State hockey 
team, welcome to the White House. This is your moment.
    I want to give my best regards to Bob Arbuckle, the president of 
LSSU; Jeff Jackson, the head coach of the Lakers. And I want to talk a 
little about this team. But before I do, I have to say something about 
another Michigan moment. During this last winter, the coldest we'd had 
here in 100 years, a deep freeze struck the Upper Peninsula, causing 
extensive damage to the infrastructure of the region.
    The State of Michigan requested a major disaster declaration through 
our emergency management agency to provide assistance to 10 counties. I 
have just been advised by the Director of FEMA, James Lee Witt, that his 
agency is reviewing the State's request, and he expects to recommend to 
me on Monday that a major disaster declaration is warranted with a 
preliminary estimate of $7.1 million, which is expected to increase as 
the thawing continues. I want to thank Representative Stupak and Senator 
Levin and Senator Reigle for their interest in the matter and say that I 
hope the thawing continues in the Upper Peninsula, Mr. Stupak.
    Now, back to the school. It's relatively small--3,400 students--and 
smaller than many of your competitors. And yet, by concentrating on the 
fundamentals, concentrating on quality, year after year you produce 
excellence. Three national titles in 7 years, two in the last 3 years. 
Three straight NCAA championship games.
    Be proud not just because you're champions, but more important, 
because of what made you champions: hard work, determination, 
discipline, loyalty, and teamwork. I hope each of you will take that 
example into your communities and on into your lives. There are too many 
young people in America who don't have the kind of hope you have, no one 
to push them forward or no one to cheer for them.
    Tonight and tomorrow, people all over this country will now see a 
picture of you here, and some child will be inspired to work harder. 
Because of you, he or she will believe that they can do more with their 
lives, make more of themselves, and make a difference.
    If I could leave one message today, it would be this: Never 
underestimate the impact of this achievement on other people, especially 
young people. President Kennedy once said, ``One man can make a 
difference, and every man should try.'' I hope all of you will do that.
    Again, welcome to the White House.

Note: The President spoke at 4:13 p.m. in the Rose Garden at the White 
House. In his remarks, he referred to Herb Brooks, 1980 U.S. Olympic 
hockey team coach. This item was not received in time for publication in 
the appropriate issue.

Proclamation 6684--National Walking Week, 1994

May 6, 1994

By the President of the United States

of America

A Proclamation

    We should all be aware of the benefits of regular physical activity; 
it can improve our energy levels while we expend calories. It can be as 
simple to incorporate into our daily lives as taking the stairs instead 
of the elevator, walking an extra block instead of riding, or taking a 
walk after a meal instead of taking a nap. Regular physical exercise can 
help to prevent and manage coronary heart disease, hypertension, 
noninsulin-dependent diabetes, osteoporosis, and mental health problems, 
such as depression and anxiety. And regular physical activity has been 
associated with lower rates of colon cancer and incidence of stroke.
    Walking is an excellent form of light to moderate physical activity 
for most people. Walking for at least 30 minutes each day is a simple 
and inexpensive, yet very healthful, thing to do. It is a key element in 
Healthy People 2000, the Nation's prevention agenda, which envisions a 
healthier America by the year 2000. An increase in this important, 
positive health-related exercise can have a significant effect on the 
enhanced quality and life span of those who practice it. It is an
