Below you will see the ORIGINAL, COMPLETE, and UNCUT, footage of Presidents Kennedys,
Cuban Missile crisis speech a.k.a. The Scariest Speech Ever taken on November 22nd, 1962.
"I was 13 years old during the Cuban Missile Crisis, and I can remember very well watching this live with my Dad and Mother. We had been living with the threat of nuclear war with Russia for a number of years in 1962, and those of you who were not born yet cannot imagine the frightening thought of a possible atomic war at any time. It was no joke, and we had regular "duck and cover" drills in school, and everyone was building fallout shelters if they could afford to. I remember my Slovak mother, who hated the Russians for what they did to Czechoslovakia was furious over this Crisis, and my Irish father, who fought the Germans in WW2, when Kennedy mentioned Khruschev, swore and called him "that commie Russian bastard". We knew this was serious, and the entire nation stood by Kennedy and prayed we wouldn't have to send our troops into Cuba or fight the Russians over Berlin. It was a pivotal time in American history, and I'm proud to have lived through this historical era."
