What Is the Millennium Program?

"... the coming of this new century and millennium presents us with a wonderful opportunity to reflect on the past, on where we've been, on who we are, and what we hope to become... By giving our own gifts to the future, we can make sure that when the new millennium finally comes, we won't just be celebrating a new year; we will be celebrating the enduring strength of our democracy, the renewal of our sense of citizenship, and the full flowering of the American mind and spirit."
First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton

"... The 20th century has been called the American century... our American spirit of discovery, innovation, and faith in the future have carried us forward and inspired billions of people around the world.... As the year 2000 draws near, we must ask ourselves... what of our values and heritage will we carry with us. And what gifts shall we give to the future." President Clinton
