Whereas, the application of reason offers hope for individuals, for improving conditions and for cultivating intelligent and ethical interactions among people and their environments; and

Whereas, in writing the Constitution of the United States of America, its authors applied the philosophies of reason; and

Whereas, most people value reason and appreciate its presence in the community

Now, therefore, I, Vera Katz, Mayor of the City of Portland, Oregon, the "City of Roses," do hereby proclaim June 23, 2001 to be

A Day of Reason

in Portland
