You've heard some of the familiar lines from JFK's inauguration...but have you ever sat down and watched the whole thing?

Sure, you know the famous lines, "The torch has been passed to a new generation," and "Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country."  But those lines are just a small sample of what many agree was one of the great inauguration speeches in American politics.

Thursday marked the 50th anniversary of JFK'S inauguration.  I was not alive back in 1961, and don't recall ever seeing the whole speech.  So I looked it up on the internet and watched it.

Regardless of your political persuasion, the speech is worth looking up and watching and thinking about.  Let me know your impressions.
