羅伯特福洛斯特 (Robert Frost) 在約翰甘迺迪 (John F. Kennedy) 的就職典禮上朗誦詩作:1961120

西元1961年的120日,美國人從電視上、廣播中,或者站在 國會前聽到這段有名的話:「所以,我親愛的美國同胞:不要問你的國家能為你們做些什麼,問問你能為你的國家做些什麼。我親愛的世界公民們:不要問美國能為你們做些什麼,問問我們能一起為人類的自由做些什麼。」這是約翰‧甘迺迪在宣示就任美國第35任總統時所說的一段話。

On January 20, 1961 Americans watching television, listening to the radio, or standing on the Capitol grounds heard these famous words: "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." So said John F. Kennedy when he was sworn in as 35th president of the United States.
