Remarks by the President in Unveiling of September 11th United States Postage Stamp
The Oval Office

2:50 P.M. EST

THE PRESIDENT: Welcome. We're about to unveil a stamp, it's an extraordinary piece of work. I want to thank the photographer here and I want to thank Gary Ackerman for sponsoring it. This stamp will sell for 45 cents -- 11 cents, obviously, more than the current price of a stamp. Eight cents will go to a victims' fund to help those family members who are struggling in the aftermath of 9/11.

It is a -- it's a good gesture by the Postal Service. The Postmaster General is here, and I want to thank you for that very much.

POSTMASTER GENERAL POTTER: Thank you, Mr. President.

THE PRESIDENT: The three officers are here, and they're on the stamp. And I appreciate you all allowing your -- allowing the Postal Service to use you as a way to help our nation remember the terrible incident that took place six months ago, and help people get their lives back in order.

And so it's with pleasure that we reveal the stamp.

(Stamp is unveiled.)

THE PRESIDENT: Fabulous, good job, really good job.

END 2:52 P.M. EST
