Mother's Day, 2007 – A Proclamation by the President of the United States of America

Saturday, May 12th, 2007

Mother's Day, 2007
A Proclamation by the President of the United States of America


To honor mothers, the Congress, by a joint resolution approved May 8, 1914, as amended (38 Stat. 770), has designated the second Sunday in May each year as “Mother’s Day” and has requested the President to call for its appropriate observance. Throughout the year, and especially on this day, America’s sons and daughters honor our mothers and celebrate their selfless gift of love.

NOW, THEREFORE, I, GEORGE W. BUSH, President of the United States of America, do hereby proclaim May 13, 2007, as Mother’s Day. I encourage all Americans to show their gratitude and love to mothers for making a difference in the lives of their children, families, and communities. I call upon citizens to observe this day with appropriate programs, ceremonies, and activities.

Limerick Day
A limerick is a five line poem popularized by Edward Lear. On this his birthday, take some time to write your own limerick today. Here is an example to get you started. . . 

There once were some rhymes they called limericks
Repeated by smart men and dimwits
They’re easy to make
A real piece of cake
Until you get to the last line

And many limericks can be quite colorful. Remember – There once was a man from Nantucket. . . ??
