THE PRESIDENT: Laura and I just had the honor of celebrating Easter Sunday with members of our Armed Forces. I had a chance to reflect on the great sacrifice that our military and their families are making. I prayed for their safety, I prayed for their strength and comfort, and I pray for peace.

This is a joyous day for many people around the world, and it’s a day for us to reflect on the many blessings in our lives. And we thank the General and the preacher at Fort Hood for welcoming me and Laura, and Mother and Dad and my Mother-in-Law. We wish all Americans a peaceful weekend. We wish our troops all the very best.

Thank you.

MRS. BUSH: Happy Easter.

END 10:01 A.M. CDT
