Quote of the Day (John F. Kennedy, on the Quiet Ongoing ‘Pursuit of Peace’)

“Peace is a daily, a weekly, a monthly process, gradually changing opinions, slowly eroding old barriers, quietly building new structures. And however undramatic the pursuit of peace, that pursuit must go on.”—American President John F. Kennedy (1917-1963), “Final Address to the United Nations General Assembly,” delivered September 20, 1963, New York, NY

This is a style of speaking—and an attitude toward diplomacy—almost impossible to imagine these days. Just one more thing lost on that terrible day in Dallas 56 years ago today…
