"Let us not seek the Republican answer or the Democratic answer, but the right answer. Let us not seek to fix the blame for the past. Let us accept our own responsibility for the future." - John F. Kennedy

Text of the speech that JFK was going to present in Dallas.

Thank you, PBS.

This was a hard to put together - for those of you who weren't alive then, that's when this country lost its belief that we could accomplish anything; fix every problem with reason and without force of arms; take care of our own that needed help and make their lives better. He had very human failings, but he started us on a path that took us to the moon and beyond. I think we would be a better country had that abscess of a loser missed with all three shots.

Rest in Peace, Mr. President.
