Quote of the day

"Freedom has many difficulties and democracy is not perfect. But we have never had to put up a wall to keep our people in, to prevent them from leaving us."

President John F. Kennedy, Berlin, June 26, 1963

This is one of those speeches I wish I could have been alive to witness. You can view the entire text of the speech here or download an MP3 here. If you decide to listen, make sure to listen not only to Kennedy's voice (and his New England accent), but to the reaction of the crowd.
