新時代的樂觀力量-美國甘迺迪總統就職演說(#22/28)


1961/1/20美國第卅五任總統宣誓就職所發表的演說。全文合計1355個單詞,被譽為廿世紀最令人難忘的美國就職總統演說之一。

And if a beached  of.co-operation may push back the jungle of suspicion, let both sides join sides, join in creating a new endeavor, not a new balance of power, but a new world of law, where the strong are just and the week secure and the peace preserved.
    All this will not be finished in the first one hundred days. Nor will it be finished in the first one thousand days, nor in the life of this administration, nor even perhaps in our lifetime on this planet. But let us begin.
    In the long history of the world, only a few generations have been granted the role of defending freedom in its hours of maximum danger. I do not shrink from this responsibility—-I welcome it.i don not believe that any of us would exchange places with any other people or any other generation.The energy, the faith, the devotion which we bring to this endeavor will light our country and all who serve it—-and the glow from that fie can truly light he world.
    And so my fellow citizens of he world: as not what your country can do for you —ask what you can for your country.
    My fellow citizens of the world: ask not what America will do for you , but what together we can do for  the freedom of man.
    

Finally, whether you are citizens of America or citizens of the world, ask of us here the same  high standards of strength and sacrifice which we ask of you With a good conscience our only sure reward, with history  the final judge of our deeds, let us go forth to lead the land we love, asking His blessing and His help, but knowing that her on path Gods word must truly be our own.
