John F. Kennedy, We Are the Watchmen on the Walls of Freedom

American Minute with Bill Federer

Shots rang out as President John F. Kennedy was assassinated NOVEMBER 22, 1963, in Dallas, Texas. The youngest President ever elected, he was also the youngest to die, barely serving 1,000 days.

The 46-year-old Kennedy was on his way to the Dallas Trade Mart to deliver a speech, in which he prepared to say:

“We in this country, in this generation, are – by destiny rather than choice – the watchmen on the walls of world freedom. We ask, therefore, that we may be worthy of our power and responsibility, that we may exercise our strength with wisdom and restraint, and that we may achieve in our time and for all time the ancient vision of peace on earth, goodwill toward men.”

Kennedy continued:

That must always be our goal – and the righteousness of our cause must always underlie our strength. For as was written long ago, ‘Except the Lord keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.’

Just three weeks after his Inauguration, February 9, 1961, President Kennedy remarked at a Breakfast for International Christian Leadership:

Every President of the United States has placed special reliance upon his faith in God…The guiding principle and prayer of this Nation has been, is now, and shall ever be ‘In God We Trust.’
