"Families are...

the foundation from which we grow, and they form the bedrock of our Nation's communities.  Celebrating with us in our greatest moments, and guiding us through uncertain times, families help us live out our lives with happiness and purpose.

As you reflect on your history and look toward the future, may you preserve important traditions and create new memories together. And may the love that binds you drive you forward in all you do."
