STATE OF THE UNION ON THIS DAY IN 1965

Related image


On January 4, 1965, in his State of the Union address, President
Lyndon
Baines Johnson
lays out for Congress a laundry list of legislation needed
to achieve his plan for a
Great Society. On the heels of John F. Kennedy’s
tragic death
, Americans had elected Johnson, his vice president, to the
presidency by the largest popular vote in the nation’s history. Johnson
used this mandate to push for improvements he believed would better
Americans’ quality of life.

Following Johnson’s lead, Congress enacted sweeping legislation in the
areas of civil rights, health care, education and the environment. The 1965
State of the Union address heralded the creation of Medicare/Medicaid,
Head Start, the Voting Rights Act, the Civil Rights Act, the Department of
Housing and Urban Development and the
White House Conference on
Natural Beauty. Johnson also signed the National Foundation of the Arts
and Humanities Act, out of which emerged the National Endowment for
the Arts and the National Endowment for the Humanities.

JOINT MISSION TO THE MOON SUGGESTED

Image result for JOINT MISSION TO THE MOON SUGGESTED BY    JFK ON SEPTEMBER 20, 1963 IN 1963 BY JFK
President John F. Kennedy addresses the United Nations General Assembly in New York on Sept. 20, 1963. Kennedy spoke for what
would be his last address to that body.

An optimistic and upbeat President John F. Kennedy suggests that the
Soviet Union and the United States cooperate on a mission to mount an
expedition to the moon. The proposal caught both the Soviets and many
Americans off guard.

In 1961, shortly after his election as president, John F. Kennedy announced
that he was determined to win the “space race” with the Soviets. Since 1957,
when the Soviet Union sent a small satellite–Sputnik–into orbit around the
earth, Russian and and American scientists had been competing to see who
could make the next breakthrough in space travel.


President Kennedy closed his speech by urging, “Let us do the big things together.”
