Thread: JFK 100 Years

  1. Default JFK 100 Years

    Wherever you happen to be on May 29th, pause for a moment and reflect.

  2. Default Dealey Plaza UK to commemorate JFK 100 here on May 29th


  3. Default

    The town I live in has a war memorial patio, built after WWII, etched beside the brick town hall building. Every Memorial Day dozens of small flags, beside white crosses bearing the names of town servicemen slain in modern war, are implanted in the patio lawn. A semi-circle engraving in the stone patio walkway, alongside the town's main sidewalk, reads ALL GAVE SOME, SOME GAVE ALL.

    It is a fitting, indeed, a holy coincidence, that 2017's Memorial Day is also the 100th birthday of John F. Kennedy. The world owes him a debt of gratitude, in particular for averting a nuclear exchange during the Cuban Missile Crisis. His wisdom and courage during that cataclysmic time outweighed the combined experience of his military advisers, and the solution achieved was workable, rational, and one that the world could live with.

    And the price for his dauntless commitment to the hard work of peace would be paid in Dealey Plaza. And the world has still not emerged from the deep shadows cast by his brutal, mysterious assassination.

  4. Default A memorable address to the nation...

    ​A memorable address to the nation occurred in October '62, and I saw it live on TV. As I was approaching age 16 at the time, I had some understanding about what was at stake. But, most of all, I appreciated the fact that JohnFitzgeraldKennedy was our elected POTUS, and never did I wish it was someone else dealing with the crisis. And, I can honestly say that hindsight is not at play in this statement.
