Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (JFK+50) On Independence Day, July 4, 1962, President John F. Kennedy spoke at Independence Hall here in the city of Philadelphia.
The President said...
"To read it today is to hear a trumpet call. For that Declaration unleashed not merely a revolution against the British, but a revolution in human affairs. Its authors were highly conscious of its worldwide implications."
John Q. Public analyzes JFK's Independence Day speech as follows...
"The best leaders teach us about our values. Sometimes by giving speeches that move us 53 years later."
JQP believes that our Founding Fathers "were not merely great authors penning thoughts about their high minded ideals" but also "men of honor who staked their lives to these values."
