UNITED WE STAND
to friend and foe alike, that the torch has been passed
to a new generation of Americans, born in this century,
tempered by war, disciplined by a hard and bitter peace,
proud of our ancient heritage, and unwilling to witness or permit
the slow undoing of those human rights to which this nation
has always been committed, and to which we are committed today
at home and around the world. Let every nation know,
whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price,
bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend,
oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty.
Let us never negotiate out of fear,
but let us never fear to negotiate.
And so my fellow Americans,
ask not what your country can do for you;
ask what you can do for your country."
