President John F. Kennedy Inaugural Address
– January 20, 1961
“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."
"And yet the same revolutionary beliefs for which our forebears fought are still at issue around the globe – the belief that the rights of man come not from the generosity of the state but from the hand of God."
"Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty."
"United there is little we cannot do in a host of cooperative ventures. Divided there is little we can do – for we dare not meet a powerful challenge at odds and split asunder.“
Martin Luther King Jr:
"I Have A Dream"
– August 28, 1963
“I am happy to join with you today in what will go down in history as the greatest demonstration for freedom in the history of our nation.“
“This note was a promise that all men, yes, black men as well as white men, would be guaranteed the “unalienable Rights” of “Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.“
“This is no time to engage in the luxury of cooling off or to take the tranquilizing drug of gradualism. Now is the time to make real the promises of democracy.“
“Now is the time to make justice a reality for all of God’s children.“
