    Designating the second Sunday in the month of December 2004 as 
                 ``National Children's Memorial Day''.

Whereas approximately 80,000 infants, children, teenagers, and young adults of 
        families living throughout the United States die each year from myriad 
        causes;
Whereas the death of an infant, child, teenager, or young adult of a family is 
        considered to be one of the greatest tragedies that a parent or family 
        will ever endure during a lifetime;
Whereas a supportive environment, empathy, and understanding are considered 
        critical factors in the healing process of a family that is coping with 
        and recovering from the loss of a loved one; and
Whereas April is National Child Abuse Prevention month: Now, therefore, be it
    Resolved,

SECTION 1. DESIGNATION OF NATIONAL CHILDREN'S MEMORIAL DAY.

    The Senate--
            (1) designates the second Sunday in the month of December 
        2004 as ``National Children's Memorial Day''; and
            (2) requests that the President issue a proclamation 
        calling upon the people of the United States to observe 
        ``National Children's Memorial Day'' with appropriate 
        ceremonies and activities in remembrance of the many infants, 
        children, teenagers, and young adults of families in the United 
        States who have died.
                                 <all>
