on the occasion of Taiwanese American Heritage Week!
United States is grateful to Taiwanese Americans for their
outstanding contributions to the diversity and prosperity
of American society.
Today you are both honoring the lives of Taiwanese
Americans and providing an opportunity for Bay Area residents
to learn about and enjoy Taiwanese culture.
regret that the Congressional schedule prevents me from
joining you today to celebrate your heritage and the spirit
of community that binds us together as one nation.
accept my best wishes for a successful and memorable festival.
