Dona Nobis Pacem

After enduring four years of a President exploiting our differences, I'm honoring the eloquence of a leader who reminded us of what we share.

"Our most basic common link is that we all inhabit this same planet. We all breathe the same air. We all cherish our children's future. And we are all mortal." 

John F. Kennedy, Commencement Speech at American University, June 10, 1963


"Let us not be petty when our cause is so great. Let us not quarrel amongst ourselves when our Nation's future is at stake. Let us stand together with renewed confidence in our cause – united in our heritage of the past and our hopes for the future and determined that this land we love shall lead all mankind into new frontiers of peace and abundance."

  1. Absolutely love this!

  2. Losing Kennedy was such a tragedy. I love your quote choices. Aww... I've missed reading your blog. I dried up for a few years and went into brainless. Must get back out and about the blog-realm.

    Great post and so nice seeing your name up at Mimi's.

  3. "Let us not be petty when our cause is so great." What a great quote that is.

  4. Replacing hateful words with this brilliant is just the right thing to do. Well done!
