Happy 100th Birthday John Fitzgerald Kennedy


Today is the 100th birthday of the 35th president:  JFK.  Upon accepting the New York Liberal Party nomination in 1960, he is quoted as saying:

If by a “Liberal” they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people — their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights, and their civil liberties — someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what they mean by a “Liberal,” then I’m proud to say I’m a “Liberal.”

The world is a better place because he was in it and still feels the loss that he has left.

NAME: John F. Kennedy
OCCUPATION: Civil Rights Activist, U.S. Representative, U.S. President
