Honoring President's Day

   When I think of a great president John F. Kennedy is the one who comes to mind, because he stood up against the covert operation that had been, and still is, a serious danger to America as well as the rest of humanity. We need more officials like him - officials who openly stand up for our Freedom...etc. I beg government and media officials, around the globe, to let your Hearts openly stand up for us and the Freedom that still remains too painfully unavailable for too many of us.
   In the 1960s JFK not only stood up for Freedom, but he also shared wisdom that still yearns to be heard and honored. . .

   President John F. Kennedy ~ "I want to talk about our common responsibilities in the face of a danger. . . the dimensions of its threat have loomed large on the horizon for many years. Whatever our hopes may be for the future - for reducing this threat or living with it - there is no escaping either the gravity or the totality of its challenge to our survival and to our security - a challenge that confronts us in unaccustomed ways in every sphere of human activity. . .
   The very word secrecy is repugnant in a free and open society; and we are, as a people, inherently and historically opposed to secret societies, to secret oaths and secret proceedings. We decided long ago that the dangers of excessive and unwarranted concealment of pertinent facts far outweighed the dangers which are cited to justify it. Even today, there is little value in opposing the threat of a closed society by imitating its arbitrary restrictions. Even today, there is little value in insuring the survival of our nation if our traditions do not survive with it. . .
   Today no war has been declared, and however fierce the struggle may be, it may never be declared in the traditional fashion. Our way of life is under attack. Those who make themselves our enemy are advancing around the globe. The survival of our friends is in danger. . .no war ever posed a greater threat to our security. . .for we are opposed, around the world, by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies primarily on covert means for expanding its sphere of influence - on infiltration instead of invasion, in subversion instead of elections, on intimidation, instead of free choice, on guerrillas by night, instead of armies by day. . .its preparations are concealed, not published. Its mistakes are buried, not headlined. Its dissenters are silenced, not praised. . .  This is a time of peace and peril, which knows no precedent in history. It is the unprecedented nature of this challenge that also gives rise to your second obligation, an obligation which I share. And that is our obligation to inform and alert the American people - to make certain that they possess all the facts that they need, and understand them as well. . .  I have complete confidence in the response and dedication of our citizens whenever they are fully informed. . . it is to the printing press - to the recorder of mans deeds, the keeper of his conscience. . . that we look for strength and assistance, confident that with YOUR help, man will be what he was born to be - free and independent." 


Give us STRENGTH, God...to find our way through bullets
hidden in microwaves, and COURAGE, God...to make a
STAND that saves our lives and FREEs our land.
