Our 35th President of the United States, John Fitzgerald Kennedy (May 29, 1917 – November 22, 1963), felled by an assassins bullet on November 22, 1963. Do you remember where you were? Are you old enough to remember this event?
This memorial, in Forth Worth, Texas, was where JFK, as he was familiarly known as, began his presidential trip to Texas.
His trip culminated that fateful day, November 22, 1963, at Dealey Plaza in Dallas, Texas, when a shot rang out from the six-floor of the Texas School Book Depository.
The book depository was closed, and made into a memorial museum.
One of the most memorable parts of JFK’s inaugural speech was, "Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country"
No government, no king, no dictator built this nation. It was built by ordinary people, fleeing
from tyranny and despotism, seeking religious freedom and liberty.
Born was the idea of self governance, freedom and liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
When Statesman Benjamin Franklin left Independence Hall, he was confronted by a lady. She asked Mr. Franklin, "What have you done in there?" Mr. Franklin replied, "Madam, we have given you a republic…if you can keep it.
Can we keep it?
P.S. I grew up in Tacoma, Washington. I was in High School woodshop (Pacific Standard Time) last period before lunch…never got lunch, we were dismissed. I remember my parents were numb, as was I and so many others. I don’t care what party you are, assassination is the cowards way of politics.
