This was written in 1960 by then President Elect JFK…the problem of the softening of America has only gotten worse…..Its time to start making a change, You are the change start with yourself and teach someone else and let’s rebuild what has been lost. Not only will it be good for the general defense of our country but it will be good for the health and welfare of our country as well. Being Physically fit makes good economic sense.
“we can fully restore the physical soundness of our nation only if every American is willing to assume responsibility for his own fitness and the fitness of his children. We do not live in a regimented society where men are forced to live their lives in the interest of the state. We are, all of us, as free to direct the activities of our bodies as we are to pursue the objects of our thought. But if we are to retain this freedom, for ourselves and for generations yet to come, then we must also be willing to work for the physical toughness on which the courage and intelligence and skill of man so largely depend.” JFK
