Agreed to December 15, 2000
One Hundred Sixth Congress
United States of America
AT THE SECOND SESSION
Begun and held at the City of Washington on Monday,
the twenty-fourth day of January, two thousand
Whereas human progress in the 21st century will depend upon global
understanding and cooperation in finding positive solutions to hunger
Whereas the turn of the millennium offers unparalleled opportunity for
humanity to examine its past, set goals for the future, and establish
new patterns of behavior;
Whereas the people of the United States and the world observed the day
designated by the United Nations General Assembly as ``One Day in
Peace, January 1, 2000'' (General Assembly Resolution 54/29);
Whereas the example set on that day ought to be recognized globally and
repeated each year;
Whereas the people of the United States seek to establish better
relations with one another and with the people of all countries; and
Whereas celebration by the breaking of bread together traditionally has
been the means by which individuals, societies, and nations join
together in peace: Now, therefore, be it
Resolved by the Senate (the House of Representatives concurring),
That it is the sense of Congress that--
(1) each year should begin with a day of peace and sharing
(A) people around the world should gather with family,
friends, neighbors, their faith community, or people of another
culture to pledge nonviolence in the new year and to share in a
celebratory new year meal; and
(B) Americans who are able should match or multiply the
cost of their new year meal with a timely gift to the hungry at
home or abroad in a tangible demonstration of a desire for
increased friendship and sharing among people around the world;
(2) the President should issue a proclamation each year calling
on the people of the United States and interested organizations to
observe such a day with appropriate programs and activities.
