Chaplain's Challenge

“The energy, the faith, the devotion which we bring to this endeavor will light our country and all who serve it - and the glow from that fire can truly light the world. And so, my fellow Americans: ask not what your country can do for you - ask what you can do for your country.”

-SK John F Kennedy, Presidential Inaugural Address, 20 January 1961
