Subject: RE: Breathtaking Speech - Kennedy on Frost
Thanks to Peter for this thread in the first place, and to Desert Dancer for revivng it. I hadn't seen it before.

... 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, which will protect the beauty of our natural environment, which will preserve the great old American houses and squares and parks of our national past, and which will build handsome and balanced cities for our future...

Americans must feel embarrassed, looking at how it's turned out so far, and what you've got today...
