Every day, families offer comfort and support to one another with enduring and unconditional love and they contribute to their communities and our country. During National Family Week, we uplift and honor the families that give so much to forge a brighter future for themselves and for America. [...] This week, let us reflect on and applaud the hard work, resilience, and dedication of our families.
