On behalf of President Obama and the people of the United States, I am delighted to send best wishes to the people of Honduras as you celebrate the 191st anniversary of your independence this September 15.  As Hondurans young and old rejoice in your proud culture and heritage, and as you enjoy the great procession of school parades that define Honduran Independence Day, I hope you have the chance to reflect on the significant progress the Honduran people have made in building a democratic future and expanding opportunity for all members of society.  Together, our two countries are partnering to tackle challenges and build new opportunities for generations to come.  The American people stand with you as you work to construct a more secure and prosperous future for Honduras.

Please accept my heartfelt “¡Felicitaciones!” to Hondurans around the world.
