11-22-11 Looking Back

“If a free society cannot help the many who are poor, it cannot save the few who are rich.”

“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.”

“Modern cynics and skeptics… see no harm in paying those to whom they entrust the minds of their children a smaller wage than is paid to those to whom they entrust the care of their plumbing.”

“Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.”

“The very word ‘secrecy’ is repugnant in a free and open society; and we are as a people inherently and historically opposed to secret societies, to secret oaths, and to secret proceedings.”

Today I realized that JFK‘s assassination is more than twice as distant from Abigail as Pearl Harbor was distant from me when I was her age.
