A quickie post for tonight | Google’s tribute to JFK

Commemorating the 50th anniversary of Kennedy’s Inaugural Address, Google has posted a little sketch featuring Kennedy and key words he used in that address.

I leave you with a few quotes.

“The world is very different now, for man holds in his mortal hands, the power to abolish all forms of human poverty, and all forms of human life.”

“Divided. . .there is little we can do. . .for we dare not meet a powerful challenge, at odds, and split asunder.”

“We shall not always expect to find them supporting our view. But we shall always hope to find them strongly supporting their own freedom. . .and to remember that. . .in the past. . .those who foolishly sought power by riding the back of the tiger ended up inside.

“So let us begin anew. . .remembering on both sides that civility is not a sign of weakness, and sincerity is always subject to proof.”

“In your hands, my fellow citizens. . .more than mine. . .will rest the final success or failure of our course.”

And of course: “And so, my fellow Americans. . .ask not what your country can do for you. . .ask what you can do for your country.”
