Ask What You Can Do For Your Country

你能为国家做些什么--by John F kennedy   约翰●肯尼迪

(百年经典演说回放Great  American Historical Addresses )

Editor's Note

Great speeches will absolutely not fade out from people's hearts, they still shake your soul whenever you pick them up. The following two speeches selected give strong support to my words. These two speeches really change the course of history, they are delivered in high spirit and full of encouraging words, throwing us in a sense of asking what you can do for 中国 and loving freedom and peace.



In your hands, my fellow citizens, more than mine, will rest the final success or failure of our course.  Since this country was founded, each generation of Americans has been summoned to give testimony to its national loyalty.  The graves of young Americans who answered the call to service surround the globe.

Now the trumpet summons us again - not as a call to bear arms, though arms we need; not as a call to battle, though embattled we are; but a call to bear the burden of a long twilight struggle, year in and year out, "rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation,"  a struggle against the common enemies of man: tyranny, poverty, disease and war itself.

Can we forge against these enemies a grand and global alliance, North and South, East and West that can assure a more fruitful life for all mankind?  Will you join in that historic effort?

In the long history of the world, only a few generations have been granted the role of defending freedom in its hour of maximum danger.  I do not shrink from this responsibility; I welcome it.  I do not believe that any of us would exchange places with any other people or any other generation.  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. 

My fellow citizens of the world, ask not what America will do for you, but what together we can do for the freedom of man.

Finally, whether you are citizens of America or citizens of the world, ask of us here the same high standards of strength and sacrifice which we ask of you.  With a good conscience our only sure reward, with history the final judge of our deeds, let us go forth to lead the land we love, asking His blessing and His help, but knowing that here on earth God's work must truly be our own.









Rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation.     


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


With a good conscience our only sure reward, with history the final  judge of our deeds...
