(Winter deserves a little color, right?)

Third Day of Christmas
"What kind of peace do we seek? ... Not the peace of the grave or the security of the slave. I am talking about genuine peace, the kind of peace that makes life on earth worth living, the kind that enables men and nations to grow and to hope and to build a better life for their children -- not merely peace for Americans but peace for all men and women, not merely peace in our time but peace for all time."

- John F. Kennedy,
American University speech, June 10, 1963
