Today’s Google Doodle: John F. Kennedy’s Inaugural AddressCategory: Computers
Today marks the 50th anniversary of John F. Kennedy’s inauguration as the 35th President of the United States of America.
To honor the event, Google today has in its home page a doodle of JFK with what looks like assorted words.
Actually, those are not just mere words. They are words from John F. Kennedy’s famous inaugural address.
Last January 20, 1961, the late US President delivered one of the most stirring speeches in history.
One line stood out from that address,
“Ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country.”
Full transcript of the speech is here. [Inaugural address of John F. Kennedy]
Kennedy was assassinated on November 22, 1963 in Dallas, Texas by Lee Harvey Oswald.
