And the winner is...

Coastie Dad, for correctly identifying the author of the speech below. Indeed, it was President Kennedy. Of note, it is the speech he would have delivered in Dallas in November 1963. Yes, those were excerpts from his prepared remarks, unspoken as he didn't make it to the Trade Mart.

I find it interesting that his words, at least the excerpts cited, apply as well today as they did more than 40 years ago. Our adversaries have changed, but our purpose and our goal, I would suggest, have not.

I'm not sure, however, that we are following President Kennedy's counsel.
