#1242 The highest appreciation

The Chinese use two brush strokes to write the word 'crisis.' One brush stroke stands for danger; the other for opportunity. In a crisis, be aware of the danger--but recognize the opportunity.

The rights of every man are diminished when the rights of one man are threatened.

Ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country.

We must find time to stop and thank the people who make a difference in our lives.

We celebrate the past to awaken the future.

As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.

Quotes by John F. Kennedy, who was assassinated 50 years ago, Nov. 22, 1962

- What crisis have you confronted?
- What can you do for your country?
- What actions could help to express your gratitude?
