[John F. Kennedy once said] that in the long history of the world only a few generations have been granted the role of defending freedom in its moments of greatest danger.
We do not shrink from this responsibility, but rather welcome it. None of us would change places with anyone from another generation. The energy, faith, the devotion which we bring will illuminate our country and those whom we serve.
Let every nation know, whether they wish us well or harm, that we will pay any price, will bear any burden, assume any hardship, support any friend, and oppose any enemy to assure the survival and success of the freedoms of our people and of our democracy.
- Oscar Raúl Matute, Honduran Minister of Interior and Justice
