– [John F. Kennedy] The most important
topic on earth: peace. What kind of a peace do I mean? The kind of peace that makes
life on earth worth living. And the kind that enables
men and nations to grow, and to hope, and build a
better life for their children. Not merely peace for Americans, but peace for all men and women. Not merely peace in our time, but peace in all times. For in the final analysis,
our most basic common link is that we all inhabit this small planet, we all breathe the same air, we all cherish our children’s future, and we are all mortal.
