"So let your young hearts armed with new weapons join in an old battle against ancient enemies--the enemies of poverty, disease, illiteracy, strife, and bigotry. And with your courage and with your compassion and your desire, we will build the Great Society. It is a Society where no child will go unfed, and no youngster will go unschooled. Where no man who wants work will fail to find it. Where no citizen will be barred from any door because of his birthplace or his color or his church. Where peace and security is common among neighbors and possible among nations. This is the world that waits for you. Reach out for it now. Join the fight to finish the unfinished work in your own land and in the rest of the world. I know as surely as God gives us the right to know what is right that you will succeed." - Lyndon B. Johnson
