“So, let us not be blind to our differences--  but let us also direct  attention to our common interests and to the means by which those differences can be resolved. And if we cannot end now our  differences, at least we can help make the  world safe for  diversity. For, in the  final analysis, our  most basic common  link is that we all  inhabit this small  planet. We all breathe the same air. We all  cherish our children's future. And we are all mortal."    J.F.K.
