"Our Heavenly Father, as we return to this Chamber today, we carry in our hearts the memory of those we lost on September 11th, 2001. Inspired by the faith of these men and women who so bravely answered the call of duty, may we have the courage and integrity to serve our fellow citizens to the very best of our abilities.

Lord, You remind us that with You all things are possible. As we look to the many challenging tasks that lie ahead of us, we know we need Your wisdom and guidance to make the right decisions. We ask You to lead us in the ways of Your truth. Make us Your humble servants and help us to always to remember that in serving others we are really serving You. May Your presence bless our work here today and everyday. We ask these things in the name of Your son, Jesus our Lord. Amen."

A resolution recognizing September 15, 2004, through October 15, 2004, as Hispanic Heritage Month in the state of Michigan.

Whereas, Michigan is fortunate to count among its population a large concentration of citizens of Spanish and Latin American descent, including those who have lived in Michigan for generations and those who are new to the Great Lakes State. They have contributed to Michigan's economy and society through their commitment to professions, commerce, family, and the arts; and

Whereas, Time and again throughout our nation's history, Hispanic Americans have faithfully defended the principles of freedom and representational government. Indeed, 41 Hispanic Americans have earned the nation's highest honor, the Congressional Medal of Honor; and

Whereas, During the month spanning from September 15 through October 15, Michigan's Hispanic-American community will celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month through a series of special programs featuring Hispanic history, food, dance, and art; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That the members of this legislative body recognizes the month of September 15, 2004, through October 15, 2004, as Hispanic Heritage Month in the state of Michigan.

Whereas, We are proud to join the teammates, coaches, family, friends, community members of Grosse Pointe, and the entire state of Michigan in congratulating Carly Piper for an outstanding Women's 4 X 200 Freestyle Relay Olympic gold medal performance. The excellence shown in the sports arena by this talented and hardworking athlete provides an outstanding example of the rewards gained when athleticism is combined effectively with determination and commitment; and

Whereas, A fierce competitor and dedicated team player, Carly Piper brings more than hard work and readiness to each performance. Her inextinguishable energy and will to win each meet is every bit as impressive as her ability to compete; and

Whereas, Carly Piper's career has been highlighted with many achievements, including a 6th place in the 440m freestyle at the 2004 Olympic Trials, 6th place in the 440m freestyle at the 2004 NCAA Championships, and 5th place in the 500 yard freestyle and 6th in the mile at the 2003 NCAA Championships. She was also Big Ten Freshman of the Year in 2002. Her poise under the pressure during intense competition serves as an example to all young people struggling for recognition in any sport; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That the members of this legislative body congratulate Carly Piper for her outstanding accomplishment as an Olympic athlete. May her determination grow stronger each day, and positively influence her every endeavor in the many years ahead; and be it further

African-American males have a higher risk of prostate cancer than white males. The risk of prostate cancer rises with the number of close relatives who have this disease; and
