Text, Audio, Video of Address

 

"The task had fallen on my shoulders to continue offering the democratic alternative to our people. Archibald MacLeish had said that democracy must be defended 'by arms when it is attacked by arms' and 'by truth when it is attacked by lies.'"

"The rest is the history that dramatically unfolded on your television screens...You saw a nation armed with courage and integrity, stand fast by democracy against threats and corruption."
