Inscription.  
Now the trumpet summons us again – not as a call to bear arms, though arms we need, not as a call to battle, though embattled we are; but a call to bear the burden of a long twilight struggle, year in and year out, "rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation," a struggle against the common enemies of man: tyranny, poverty, disease and war itself.
John Fitzgerald Kennedy
