President John F. Kennedy once said 'Ask not what your country can do for you but what you can do for your country.' What kinds of things do you think Kennedy had in mind when he was referring to what citizens could do for their country?
Do you think this proclamation held true when George Bush was president? I’m speculating that under his poor leadership for 8 years, many people wanted the government to do more for them than they wanted to do for the country.
Now that we have a new direction in leadership and more reason for an optimistic future (in my opinion), should citizens now consider doing more for the country or should we be expecting our government to be doing more for us at the present time due to the bad economy and other problems facing the nation?
