PROCLAMATION 6258—MAR. 8, 1991 105 STAT. 2501 Finally, seeing before us the promise of a safer, more peaceful world— one marked by respect for the rule of law—let us offer all these entreaties in a spirit of faith, humility, and gratitude, seeking reconciliation with all peoples. In so doing, we recall the timeless prayer found in Scriptiu-e: Thine, O Lord, is the greatness, and the power, and the glory... for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is Thine... and Thou reignest over all... in Thine hand is power and might; and in Thine hand it is to make great, and to give strength mito all. Now therefore, our God, we thank Thee and praise Thy glorious Name. As the Psalmist wrote, "Come behold the works of the Lord... He makes wars to cease to the end of the earth." NOW, THEREFORE, I, GEORGE BUSH, President of the United States of America, do hereby proclaim April 5-7, 1991, as National Days of Thanksgiving. I ask that Americans gather in homes and places of worship to give thanks to Almighty God for the liberation of Kuwait, for the blessings of peace and liberty, for our troops, our families, and our Nation. In addition, I direct that the flag of the United States be flown on all government buildings, I urge all Americans to display the flag, and I ask that bells across the country be set ringing at 3:00 p.m. (eastem daylight savings time) on April 7, 1991, in celebration of the liberation of Kuwait and the end of hostilities in the Persian Gulf. IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this seventh day of March, in the year of our Lord nineteen hundred and ninety-one, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and fifteenth. GEORGE BUSH Proclamation 6258 of March 8, 1991 National School Breakfast Week, 1991 By the President of the United States of America A Proclamation For more than two decades, the School Breakfast Program has helped to promote the health and well-being of our Nation's schoolchildren. By helping to ensure that youngsters enter the classroom with the energy and stamina needed to be eager and attentive students, this important child nutrition program has also contributed to the success of America's educational system. The School Breakfast Program began in 1966 as a pilot project that provided funding for meals for schoolchildren in low-income areas and in areas where children had to travel long distances to school. In 1975, the Program was permanently established, and funding was made available to all schools. Today approximately four million children in more than 38,000 schools receive nutritious morning meals through the School Breakfast Program.
