1963 Speech For Peace By President John F. Kennedy

Kennedy describes his vision for world peace in an age of nuclear threats.

American University Speech
June 10, 1963

President Anderson, members of the faculty, board of trustees, distinguished guests — my old colleague Senator Bob Byrd, who has earned his degree through many years of attending night law school while I am earning mine in the next thirty minutes — distinguished guests, ladies and gentlemen:

It is with great pride that I participate in this ceremony of the American University sponsored by the Methodist Church, founded by Bishop John Fletcher Hurst and first opened by President Woodrow Wilson in 1914.

This is a young and growing university, but it has already fulfilled Bishop Hurst’s enlightened hope for the study of history and public affairs in a city devoted to the making of history and to the conduct of the public’s business.

By sponsoring this institution of higher learning for all who wish to learn, whatever their color or their creed, the Methodists of this area and the nation deserve the nation’s thanks. And I commend all those who are today graduating.

Professor Woodrow Wilson once said that every man sent out from a university should be a man of his nation as well as a man of his time and I’m confident that the men and women who carry the honor of graduating from this institution will continue to give from their lives, from their talents a high measure of public service and public support.

There are few earthly things more beautiful than a university — wrote John Masefield in his tribute to English universities — and his words are equally true today. He did not refer to towers or to campuses. He admired the splendid beauty of a university, because it was, he said, a place where those who hate ignorance may strive to know, where those who perceive truth may strive to make others see. I have, therefore, chosen this time and place to discuss a topic on which ignorance too often abounds and the truth too rarely perceived — and that is the most important topic on earth: peace.

What kind of peace do I mean and what kind of a peace do we seek? Not a Pax Americana enforced on the world by American weapons of war, not the peace of the grave or the security of the slave. I am talking about genuine peace — 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 time.

Rebuilding Life From Within…..

howtobegin-300x300Be unique, be your exquisite self. Talk and think yourself up and high. Change the actions and thoughts that drags you down, reinforce the features that makes you good and embrace new attitudes that will make you great.

Learn to love and accept yourself with all its idiosyncrasies. Laugh hard, love like you’ve never been hurt, let it go of what can’t be changed and embrace the challenges ahead.

Let the wall you have built around to protect yourself crumble and allow others to come in. Yes, some people might hurt you again, but many will love you like you never been loved before.

Every second hides within itself the risk of the next second never happening. Life is worth living with arms, mind and heart wide open.
