The stamp’s design is based on a photo taken during President Kennedy’s time in office, and also includes a quote from his inaugural address: “Here on earth God’s work must truly be our own.”

“Whatever your politics, it would be difficult to argue that we should not be focused on our higher calling,” says Kevin Blackston, proprietor of Philosateleian Post. “This new stamp emphasizes that while at the same time recognizing President Kennedy’s public service to the United States.”

The new stamp is scheduled to be issued on World Local Post Day. Philosateleian Post’s proprietor is a member of the Local Post Collectors Society, which selected the 50th anniversary of President Kennedy’s death as the theme for the annual event. 2013 will be the third consecutive year in which Philosateleian Post has issued a stamp on World Local Post Day.
