Ask not...

January 20, 2011

Today is the 50th anniversary of John F. Kennedy's inauguration as the 35th president of the United States. To mark the date, we offer an extract from the president's celebrated speech in which he urged his 'fellow Americans' to 'ask what you can do for your country'.

The life story of President Kennedy is also available from the American National Biography.
