John F. Kennedy, The Inaugural Address

In a handsomely bound blue cloth cover and an introduction by Caroline Kennedy, this Words that Changed America volume about President Kennedy is inspiring.  Included is Robert Frost’s poem commissioned for JFK’s inauguration.  Although John F. Kennedy’s Inaugural Address and excerpts of speeches on Civil Rights and peace amidst the Cold War are impressive, an essay for young readers by Elizabeth Partridge gives perspective on an era and a president with a vision for the future.
