On November 22, 1963 history was made. I’m sure we’ve all heard at least one story from a family member, or some of my readers could give their own – where they were when JFK was killed. My father tells me about watching it on TV as a young boy, and all of the news coverage after. There are very few moments like that in recent history, but when they shock us to our core, they are remembered and shared for generations to come.

I like this fact about our late great president; Civil Rights, from his record as a senator up though the transformation near the end of his life that would help inspire the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
He was a youngest president elected to office
I have too say his famous saying Ask not what your country can do for you what you can do for your country
A lone nut, Lee Harvey Oswald, did it. The Warren Commission got it right. Bite me!
I watched a documentary about Kennedy and not only did he risk his life in Shark infested waters but he even went back into them to shoot off a gun and shine a flashlight to any passing US Naval boat. He was a brave man.
President Kennedy was particularly fond of soup–New England Fish Chowder was a favorite.
I am very impressed by his famous quote “Ask not what your country can do for you what you can do for your country”.
Ask not what your country can do for you what you can do for your country
