Proclamation 6836--Columbus Day, 1995


October 6, 1995

By the President of the United States

of America

A Proclamation

    To pursue ambitious goals and to realize great dreams, we must be 
willing to venture away from the familiar and comfortable. We must show 
the strength of our convictions to tackle the challenges, known and 
unknown, that stand between us and our hopes for the future.
    Today, Christopher Columbus' extraordinary journeys stand as 
inspiring examples of such determination. This renowned explorer braved 
the open sea, so feared by his contemporaries, and revealed the 
splendors of the New World to Renaissance Europe over 500 years ago. He 
discovered the best use of the North Atlantic wind system, first 
described the Equatorial Current, and initiated the succeeding rapid 
exploration and settlement of the Americas.
    During the course of his first transatlantic voyage, Columbus' bold 
convictions overcame the resistance of the faint-hearted members of his 
crew. He led them to the Canaries, the Bahama Islands, Cuba, and Haiti, 
and subsequent sailings took him to other Caribbean islands, Central 
America, and Venezuela. As with many pioneers throughout history, 
Columbus' limited understanding of other cultures led to conflicts and 
controversies--struggles similar to those that challenge our world even 
now. But the enduring fame of his travels and the opportunity he sought 
across uncharted waters remain a call to all who seek adventure.
    A native of Genoa, Columbus' courage and commitment led him to leave 
safe shores in pursuit of his goals. But he could not have made his 
trips without the support of the Spanish crown. People of Italian and 
Spanish descent continue to energize communities across our Nation, 
enhancing every occupation and sector of American society. We are 
grateful for their tremendous contributions and for the ingenuity of 
spirit that is Columbus' enduring legacy.
    In tribute to Columbus' many achievements, the Congress, by joint 
resolution of April 30, 1934 (48 Stat. 657), and an Act of June 28, 1968 
(82 Stat. 250), has requested the President to proclaim the second 
Monday in October each year as ``Columbus Day.''
    Now, Therefore, I, William J. Clinton, President of the United 
States of America, do here by proclaim October 9, 1995, as Columbus Day. 
I call upon the people of the United States to observe this day with 
appropriate ceremonies and activities. I also direct that the flag of 
the United States be displayed on all public buildings on the appointed 
day in honor of Christopher Columbus.
    In Witness Whereof, I have hereunto set my hand this sixth day of 
October, in the year of our Lord nineteen hundred and ninety-five, and 
of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and 
twentieth.
                                            William J. Clinton

1995]

Proclamation 6837--Leif Erikson Day, 1995

October 6, 1995

By the President of the United States

of America

A Proclamation

    Every October, we celebrate Leif Erikson Day and honor the memory of 
that great Norse explorer who first set foot on North American soil 
nearly a millennium ago. At a time when mankind has traveled from pole 
to pole and even journeyed into the vast reaches of space, Leif 
Erikson's bold determination stands as an early example of the spirit of 
adventure and enterprise.
    This day is an occasion to celebrate the bonds of friendship that 
link the United States to the Nordic countries. For generations, Iceland 
and her neighbors have acted as bridges between Europe and North 
America, playing a vital role in fostering democracy and free trade 
throughout the world. Nordic peoples have long shared America's love of 
liberty and have always reached out to those who struggle against 
oppression. Today, we in the United States are proud to work with our 
Northern friends to fully reintegrate the Baltic states of Estonia, 
Latvia, and Lithuania into the Western family of nations. Together we 
look forward to a new Europe, united by a common respect for liberty and 
equality.
    We should also mark this observance by recognizing the outstanding 
contributions that citizens of Danish, Finnish, Icelandic, Norwegian, 
and Swedish descent have made to our country. Just as their ancestors 
did before them, Nordic Americans cherish their ties across the ocean 
and bring their many gifts to America's culture, progress, and 
prosperity. As we remember Leif Erikson, whose voyage preceded so many 
rugged immigrants who braved the North Atlantic in search of economic, 
political, and religious liberties, let us pay tribute to his courage 
and renew our commitment to freedom.
    In honor of Leif Erikson--son of Iceland, grandson of Norway--the 
Congress, by joint resolution approved on September 2, 1964 (Public Law 
88-566), has authorized and requested the President to designate October 
9 of each year as ``Leif Erikson Day.''
    Now, Therefore, I, William J. Clinton, President of the United 
States of America, do hereby proclaim October 9, 1995, as Leif Erikson 
Day. I encourage the people of the United States to observe this 
occasion with appropriate ceremonies and activities commemorating our 
rich Nordic American heritage.
    In Witness Whereof, I have hereunto set my hand this sixth day of 
October, in the year of our Lord nineteen hundred and ninety-five, and 
of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and 
twentieth.
                                            William J. Clinton
