Theodore Sorensen was special counsel to President Kennedy, 1961-'63 and made this speech to the graduating class of The New School University May, 2004.

Here's a snippet:

"...For me the final blow was American guards laughing over the naked, helpless bodies of abused prisoners in Iraq. "There is a time to laugh," the Bible tells us, "and a time to weep." Today I weep for the country I love, the country I proudly served, the country to which my four grandparents sailed over a century ago with hopes for a new land of peace and freedom. I cannot remain silent when that country is in the deepest trouble of my lifetime..."

I found it thought-provoking and moving, thought you might too.
