Governor (Name of Governor) issues a Proclamation upholding motherhood

Whereas,

throughout history mothers have had a tremendous positive impact on the flow of the economy, the influence of their children and community, as well as shape the culture and influence the future; and

Whereas,

Matthew Vassar, founder of Vassar College, declared, “The Mothers of a nation mold its citizens, determine its institutions and shape its destiny.” and

Whereas,

The Declaration of Mothers was released nationally to celebrate the powerful influence of mothers in society, declare self-evident truths, and affirm that the values and virtues taught within the home and family determine the values and virtues of the state and nation as a whole; and

Whereas,

(Name of State) is home to thousands of dedicated mothers who recognize the importance of their role in shaping the future of our nation, determining the standard of civility and humanity in society, and instilling a love of liberty and virtue in the rising generation; and

Whereas,

The 8th Day of March has traditionally been designated as International Women’s Day; and

Whereas,

the most significant contribution women make in society and the greatest act of patriotism they can perform is the work they do within their own home and family; and

Whereas,

it is fitting that the people of (Name of State) honor and defend the sacred role of motherhood as a valued resource that must be preserved; the significance of home and family as the core of society that must be sustained, and esteem the divine, inherent rights of parents that must be respected,

Therefore

I, Governor (Governor’s Name), pursuant to the authority vested me by the Constitution and the Statues of the State of (Name of State), acknowledge the Declaration of Mothers and DO HEREBY PROCLAIM the 8th day of March, 2018 as

INTERNATIONAL MOTHER’S INFLUENCE DAY

in (Name of State), and do hereby urge all citizens to take due note of the observance.
