Working Away On the Eve of the New Week: On the 99th Birthday of President Kennedy.....

I ran across this from +Jonathan Huie that blew me away in terms of the reality and the rhetoric before us in the midst of the campaign season.   President Kennedy's  admonition on avoiding military solutions was  poignant.  I always wonder what may have been had he lived on this Memorial Day 2016:

Do not pray for easy lives.
Pray to be stronger men.
- John F. Kennedy

Efforts and courage are not enough without purpose and direction.
- John F. Kennedy

The great enemy of the truth is very often not the lie,
deliberate, contrived and dishonest,
but the myth, persistent, persuasive and unrealistic.
- John F. Kennedy

 The basic problems facing the world today
are not susceptible to a military solution.
- John F. Kennedy

There are risks and costs to action.
But they are far less than the long range
risks of comfortable inaction.
- John F. Kennedy
