JFK on Peace

If you are searching for the true reason why John Fitzgerald Kennedy was murdered, look no further than his June 10, 1963 commencement speech at American University.  The topic of the day: Peace.  These are some of the most poignant words ever delivered by an American president:

I have, therefore, chosen this time and this place to discuss a topic on which ignorance too often abounds and the truth is too rarely perceived – yet it is the most important topic on earth: world peace. What kind of peace do I mean? What kind of 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, the kind that enables men and nations to grow and to hope and to 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 for all time.

Here is that speech in its entirety:
