From John Fitzgerald Kennedy’s nomination acceptance address, now commonly referred to as “the New Frontier speech,” delivered at the Democratic National Convention, July 15, 1960, in Los Angeles:
“We are not here to curse the darkness; we are here to light a candle. As Winston Churchill said on taking office some twenty years ago: If we open a quarrel between the present and the past, we shall be in danger of losing the future. Today our concern must be with that future. For the world is changing. The old era is ending. The old ways will not do.”
On the 48th anniversary of JFK’s assassination, here, an exclusive look at unpublished, never-seen photos of our 35th president.
