New John F. Kennedy Quote and Liberal Accomplishments Designs
We are excited to announce that Brother Apollo has designed not one but two new designs!
Brother Apollo has always liked President John F. Kennedy elegant defense of liberals.
Kennedy’s Elegant Quote in Defense of Liberals and Liberalism —
…if by a liberal they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people — their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights, and their civil liberties — someone who believes that we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what they mean by a liberal, then I’m proud to say that I’m a liberal.
John F. Kennedy
September 14, 1960 speaking before the New York State Liberal Party
Brother Apollo said, “With all the discussion of Senator Barack Obama being like JFK, Kennedy’s quote came immediately to mind. I knew then that I had to do something with it. I wanted to come up with a way to inform those who may not remember or know about the quote, about its existence.” Below is the result of Brother Apollo efforts.
While pondering his design options, Brother Apollo commenced ruminating about liberalism effects upon mankind. After filling up several scrolls, it was suggested he display the effects of liberalism. Not one to run from a challange, Brother Apollo came up with a design displaying off some of the accomplishments of liberalism.
“Liberalism have push societies forward in many areas. Many people don’t associate these accomplishments as part of liberal movements and don’t think of themselves as liberals. Some of these people may start thinking deeper about what is and isn’t liberalism,” Brother Apollo said.
Some of the accomplishments of liberalism that Brother Apollo came up with are:
|A 40 hour work week
