    What did you learn by studying the third paragraph again?

  • Literature/Social Studies -

    No matter how many times I studied the third paragraph, I still don't know.

  • Literature/Social Studies -

    "We meet at a college noted for knowledge, in a city noted for progress, in a State noted for strength, and we stand in need of all three, for we meet in an hour of change and challenge, in a decade of hope and fear, in an age of both knowledge and ignorance. The greater our knowledge increases, the greater our ignorance unfolds."

    Kennedy compared the knowledge, progress, and strength of the state with the national need for these virtues in the national space program.
