Obama Acknowledges Gay Parents In Family Day 2009 Proclamation

Embiggen the image at left to read President Obama’s mention of gay families in his proclamation endorsing Family Day 2009. An excerpt:

Our family provides one of the strongest influences on ourlives. American families from every walk of life have taught ustime and again that children raised in loving, caring homes have the ability to reject negative behaviors and reach their highest potential. Whether children are raised by two parents, a single parent, grandparents, a same-sex couple, or a guardian, families encourage us to do our best and enable us to accomplish great things. Today, our children are confronting issues of drug and alcohol use with astonishing regularity. On Family Day, we honor the dedication of parents, commend the achievements of their children, and celebrate the contributions our Nation’s families have made to combat substance abuse among young people.
