A Five Decade Old JFK Speech He Could Have Given Today
JFK's words, five decades later, sadly, really sadly, are still applicable.
Where, oh where, is a Lincoln, Roosevelt, Truman, Kennedy or any political voice of reason in America today?
Listening to JFK passionately advocate for doing all we can to help all our citizens live lives to the best of their ability, with part of that help being government's ever, hopefully, expanding role of helping Americans create the best America that America can be, is just depressing, compared to the political discourse that coarsely erodes civil discourse in the 2013 slip sliding version of America that I am pretty sure JFK would be totally appalled by.
I know I am.
