PHOTOS Bill Clinton greets The American Legion Boys Nation delegates as they convene
"I had the opportunity to meet with my congressional delegation including Senator Fulbright, for whom I later worked, members of the president's cabinet and, of course, President Kennedy," Clinton began. "That week had a profound impact on me. I was deeply inspired to pursue a life in public service.
"Of course," Clinton continued, "I couldn't know then what jobs I'd have or when I would be elected, or what I'd be elected to, or even if I would be elected. I did know that I wanted to spend my life being of service."So," the former president concluded, "I hope that whatever you choose to do with your lives, whatever career you choose, that your week in Boys Nation will inspire the same desire to give back to your communities, your country and to people all over the world." http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/bill-clinton-observes-50th-anniversary-of-youthful-life-changing-week-216286911.html
