                Proclamation 9351 of October 16, 2015

National Character Counts Week, 2015

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                Since our Nation's founding, generations of people of 
                goodwill have contributed to the basic notion that 
                America succeeds when we look out for one another and 
                lend a hand to building a brighter future for our 
                children and grandchildren. As we celebrate National 
                Character Counts Week, we draw inspiration from those 
                who paved the way for greater tolerance and empathy 
                among all people, recognize the efforts and abilities 
                of those around us, and work to carry forward our 
                common principles and instill them in the hearts and 
                minds of future generations.

                In every corner of our country and the globe, we see 
                ordinary people whose desire to make a difference 
                reflects the best of our innate human character. They 
                are the brave men and women in uniform who serve and 
                sacrifice to protect the freedoms we hold dear, and the 
                educators and mentors who tirelessly strive to lift up 
                the lives of those who look up to them. They are 
                parents and coaches and neighbors and colleagues, and 
                in every community they are combatting cynicism and 
                working to realize a better tomorrow for strangers and 
                friends alike. Whether they are the first responders 
                who keep us safe or simply good-hearted citizens, these 
                individuals exemplify our shared values and stand for a 
                powerful fundamental truth: Our society is what we make 
                of it, and each of us--no matter who we are or where we 
                come from--can make meaningful change in the lives of 

                This week, as we hold true to the ideals that bind us 
                together, let us remind our children of their important 
                role in charting our journey forward and empower them 
                with strength and conviction to pursue progress with 
                hope and compassion. If they are able to draw on the 
                inherent qualities of our Nation's character--our 
                commitment to each other, our courage and optimism in 
                the face of challenges, and our determination to make 
                the world we share a better place--I am confident they 
                will continue serving as stewards of kindness and 
                charity and contributing to a fairer, more generous, 
                more peaceful America.

                NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the 
                United States of America, by virtue of the authority 
                vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the 
                United States, do hereby proclaim October 18 through 
                October 24, 2015, as National Character Counts Week. I 
                call upon public officials, educators, parents, 
                students, and all Americans to observe this week with 
                appropriate ceremonies, activities, and programs.

                IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this

                thousand fifteen, and of the Independence of the United 
                States of America the two hundred and fortieth.
                    (Presidential Sig.)
