“Ask not what your country can do for you…” – JFK quote

US Flag JFK ask not

“My fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.” ~ JFK

Imagine if every day, each and every one of us thought this great quote JFK said so many years ago.

But, what if we could change all of that with just one positive thought, and then another, and another? What if we started today, thinking thoughts like:

  • “I am so blessed to have my health.”
  • “I am so grateful to have a roof over my head.”
  • “I am so lucky, to live in the land of the free, home of the brave.”

If changing our thoughts, could change our mindset, and alter our attitude towards ourself and towards others, than isn’t it possible we could also make a difference for our country? Racial intolerance towards others can change to Racial Intelligence, when we start treating ourselves and others with respect, and kindness, and fairness.

Racial INTELLIGENCE is recognizing ones’ differences, while treating others with respect, consideration, and empathy. Imagine standing on this foundation? It starts with every one of us, and it can start today.
Racial Intelligence can be Learned: “It is the practice of using Emotional Intelligence (EI) and Social Intelligence (SI) Tools to treat ourselves and others fairly.”

“The battles that count…” Jesse Owens


“The battles that count aren’t the ones for gold medals. The struggles within yourself – the invisible battles inside all of us – that’s where it’s at.”

– Jesse Owens

“We remain a nation still proudly practicing prejudice…”


“While we dance in the streets and pat ourselves on the back for being a nation great enough to reach beyond racial divides to elect our first African-American president, let us not forget that we remain a nation still proudly practicing prejudice.”
