On January 20, 1961, John F. Kennedy became the 35th President of the United States. “So my fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country!”
He was assassinated on November 22, 1963—after only 1,037 days as President.
Without question his most famous speech inspiring a nation, was his Inaugural Address.
And in closing his speech—a call to endurance for the American people from Romans 12:12: “. . .year in and year out, ‘rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation’—a struggle against the common enemies of man: tyranny, poverty, disease and war itself!”
