JFK’s Dream, A Call to Action

Picture of President John F. Kennedy making a speech that I found on Word Clip Art. Photographer unknown.

Today is the 53rd anniversary of President John F Kennedy’s assassination. He gave his own “I have a dream” type speech a month before he died.

We need to heed his words and repeat them even louder and stronger now. We need to stand up for all our brethren. We need to peacefully  push back on the hate we see occurring around the United States.

If we don’t stand up now, then JFK’s dream will be lost….

“I look forward to a great future for America – a future in which our country will match its military strength with our moral restraint, its wealth with our wisdom, its power with our purpose. I look forward to an America which will not be afraid of grace and beauty. And I look forward to an America which commands respect throughout the world not only for its strength but for its civilization as well. And I look forward to a world which will be safe not only for democracy and diversity but also for personal distinction.”*

President John F. Kennedy; October 26, 1963

*NOTE, I bolded two sentences above that stand out in this part of his speech that speaks to me about my concerns at this time in our history.
