I was researching something from my library when I stumbled upon this speech of John F. Kennedy that he was supposed to deliver at the Trade Mart in Dallas/Texas, November 22,1963.


"America today is stronger than ever before.
Our adversaries have not abandoned their ambitions--
our dangers have not diminished -- our vigilance
cannot be relaxed. But now we have the military,
the scientific and the economic strength to do whatever
must be done for the preservation and promotion of freedom."

"That strength will never be used in pursuit of aggressive
ambitions -- it will always be used in pursuit of peace.
It will never be used to promote provocations -- it will always
be used to promote the peaceful settlement of sidputes

"We in this country, in this generation, are -- by destiny rather
than choice -- the watchmen on the walls of world freedom.
We ask, therefore, that we my be worthy of our power
and responsibility -- that we may exercise our strength
with wisodm and restraint -- and that we may achieve
in our time and for all time the ancient wisdom of "Peace
on Earth, Good Will Toward Men." That must always be
our goal -- and the righteousness of our cause must
always underlie our strength. For as was written longe ago:
"Except the Lord Keep the city, the watchman waketh but in Vain."

John Fitzgerald Kennedy
