The President's Radio Address

April 14, 2001

    Good morning. This weekend I am at home in Crawford, Texas, with my 
wife and my family. Millions of other families are also spending time 
together this weekend, and Laura and I wish you all a happy Easter.
    Our thoughts are also with the men and women of our military, 
deployed around the world and away from their families. They have our 
sincere gratitude. And on this holiday, we offer the thanks of our 
Nation to

[[Page 616]]

the 24 service men and women who are no longer in China and are now 
home.
    This weekend also marks the close of Passover, when Jews recall 
their deliverance from oppression. We hope this Passover has been a time 
of reflection and renewal.
    Renewal is the hope of every person and the promise of many 
religions. This season signifies the hope of renewal, a reawakening, a 
fresh vision of our lives and our possibilities. And in this season, we 
are reminded that on the path of renewal, we are not alone. We have one 
another, family members and friends, who know us and accept us as we 
are. And if we're very fortunate, we have people in our lives who see us 
not just as we are but also as we can be. That is the love of family.
    And many of us trust a Creator who knows us and loves us and has a 
plan for our lives. We cannot know where that plan will lead us on 
Earth, but we are assured that it leads nearer to God. This is the 
comfort of faith.
    In this season of renewal, we remember that failures in life are 
never final, that hope leads us closer to the truth, that in the end, 
even death itself will be defeated. And that is the shared belief of 
many faiths, and that is the promise of Easter morning.
    Thank you for listening.

Note: The address was recorded at 9 a.m. on April 12 in the Cabinet Room 
at the White House for broadcast at 10:06 a.m. on April 14. The 
transcript was made available by the Office of the Press Secretary on 
April 13 but was embargoed for release until the broadcast.

Remarks to the United States Chamber of Commerce

April 16, 2001

    Thank you very much. Kelly, thank you very much for that kind 
introduction. It's an honor for me to be here. Tom, thank you for

States, and I want to say hello to them. I thank all those who are 
tuning in. It's kind of nice to be able to speak to so many folks in so
