#35 John F. Kennedy -I10087

“…Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty.” - John F. Kennedy Inauguration Speech

On January 20, 1961, John F. Kennedy was sworn in as the 35th President of the United States by Chief Justice Earl Warren. As part of the Ceremony, African-American opera singer Marian Anderson sang “The Star-Spangled Banner,” and Robert Frost recited his poem “The Gift Outright.”

Kennedy’s timeless inauguration speech is still pertinent:

“… that the torch has been passed to a new generation of Americans … unwilling to witness or permit the slow undoing of those human rights to which this nation has always been committed, and to which we are committed today at home and around the world.”
