President Bush Encourages Character Support
This week proclaimed "National Character Counts Week"
President George W. Bush on Monday proclaimed October 17 through October 23, 2004, as National Character Counts Week. He called on all Americans to observe this week with appropriate ceremonies, activities, and programs, and to support the character development of our young people and support the institutions that give direction and purpose. The proclamation by President Bush opens with:

"Individuals have the power to do much good, and great societies are built by knowing the difference between right and wrong. People of character strengthen our country through their daily actions. To help children fulfill their potential and build a more hopeful future for our Nation, we must continue to encourage and support the character development of our young people and support the institutions that give direction and purpose: our families, our schools, and our faith-based and community organizations."

President Bush continues with "The true strength of America lies in the hearts and souls of its citizens."  We couldn't agree more.  Citizens acting not from fear of punishment, nor from pure self interest, but acting with honor to do what is right will create our strongest and greatest society.  To read the President's complete proclamation, go to
