Education and Sharing Day, U.S.A., 2006
A Proclamation by the President of the United States of America
A quality education is the cornerstone of a hopeful tomorrow for all our children. Education and Sharing Day highlights our strong support for our young people as they pursue lives of learning, prepare to become responsible leaders, and work to reach their full potential.
On Education and Sharing Day, we remember the efforts of Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, the Lubavitcher Rebbe, who promoted the importance of education and ethical teachings to every student’s future. He sought to improve lives and communities through a vast network of education and outreach centers and social service programs around the world. We continue to be inspired by the Rebbe’s good works and all those who dedicate their time, talents, and energy to helping our next generation grow into caring, responsible adults. Through devotion to faith, family, education, and community, we can continue building a better and more compassionate society.
NOW, THEREFORE, I, GEORGE W. BUSH, 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 April 9, 2006, as Education and Sharing Day, U.S.A. I call upon government officials, educators, volunteers, and all the people of the United States to reach out to young people and work to create a better, brighter, and more hopeful future for all.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this fifth day of April, in the year of our Lord two thousand six, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and thirtieth.

In case you missed that, Bush just referred to Schneerson as “the Rebbe.” Previously…
My favorite part is where he invokes “the year of our Lord.” Is his “proclomation writer” taking a jab at mashichists?

  1. I doubt he’s taking a jab. Bush doesn’t seem the type to have enough awareness to pull something like that. That’s probably standard “proclamation” language. They’ve probably got a little Word template sitting around somewhere.

  2. Yes, the “year of our lord” business is fairly standard flowery proclamation language. Tons of city mayors and state governors around the country would use the same thing. Bush would not know enough to actually take a jab at Lubavitch
