Remembering President John F. Kennedy 50 Years Later

This Friday, November 22nd, marks the 50th anniversary of the assassination of our 35th President, John Fitzgerald Kennedy.  Remembering JFK 50 years later.

Fifty years later, John F. Kennedy retains a powerful hold on the collective memory of the American people.  Tragically, we will never know where JFK could have led our country.  He was young, handsome, charming and had a beautiful wife and children.

Kennedy symbolized a youthful America, an America that had risen out of the Second World War to become the unquestioned leader of the free world.  Because JFK represented so much of the promise that America held for its own people and around the world, his shocking death was a tragedy almost beyond belief.

That’s why, fifty years after his life was cut short, John F. Kennedy remains an iconic figure in America whose words and images live on.

Although I wasn’t alive during his presidency, the image of JFK Jr. saluting at his father’s funeral is one that comes to mind when I think of Kennedy’s legacy.  My heart breaks for that three year old boy who must’ve been bewildered by what was happening.  It breaks for his sister and mother too.
