National Historic Preservation Week, 1978 By the President of the United States of America A Proclamation America's ability to meet the challenges of its third century with confidence and strength will depend upon an appreciation and understanding by the American people of their past. Among our most important links with the past are the historic sites, structures, and landmarks of earlier times. Together, they form a vast legacy of cultural resources. This legacy, however, is not merely one of monuments, battlefields, and historic buildings.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this tenth day of May, in the year of our Lord nineteen hundred seventy-eight, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and second. JIMMY CARTER

For others, motherhood means helping a weak body or an unawakened mind overcome burdens that may often seem too great to bear. For both, motherhood brings the privilege of seeing the tired world through fresh eyes and the satisfaction of knowing that one has met another's needs in a way no other could.
