THE WHITE HOUSE WASHINGTON
COMMENDATION TO SRI CHINMOY
It is a pleasure for me to cite you, Sri Chinmoy, for the inspiration and support you have given to the Liberty Torch Bicentennial Runners. This effort to re-emphasize the strong moral and physical qualities of the founders of our great country is a most noteworthy contribution to Bicentennial activities. The physical fitness of these runners serves as a good example and as good motivation for other citizens. Thanks to you, Sri Chinmoy, for an essential role in giving direction and leadership to the group and this contribution of the national physical fitness program.
