Wonderful Recording of JFK Reading the Declaration of Independence

When you get a quiet moment this weekend, take a listen to this recording, made for New York radio station WQXR’s 1957 July 4th observance. The Kennedy Library received the recording in January 1964 from WQXR.

Hearing aloud the ideal of our revolution, our independence reminded me today of why I keep fighting for progressive causes. It is a wonderful recording. If you substitute our current George, it is true again in our fight today.
