tribute #315 - JFK

JFK is my chosen nation, of those who act for
solidarity, peace-making, compassion
"civility is not a sign of weakness,"

not to bear arms, though arms we need;
in struggles against the common enemies:
tyranny, poverty, disease, and war itself.

Yes indeed. It was good to re-read his address.
