Featured President

John Fitzgerald Kennedy was the 35th President of the United States,

Serving from 1961 until his assassination in 1963. His Inaugural Address offered the memorable injunction: "Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country." As President, he set out to redeem his campaign pledge to get America moving again. His economic programs launched the country on its longest sustained expansion since World War II; before his death, he laid plans for a massive assault on persisting pockets of privation and poverty.

JFK Hopes To Spur Economy 1962/8/13


President John F. Kennedy's Inaugural Address Friday, 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.
