As many of you know, Friday was the memorial of John F. Kennedys' death and it marks 50 years since the beloved president was assassinated and we remember him and everything that he has done for this country and for the human race in general. Here goes a little bit of history about the man that took his country to the top:
John Fitzgerald Kennedy was the 35th president of the United States of America.
He was also the first president to be born within the 20th century.
He was born on May 29, 1917 and had eight siblings. He was born to a wealthy family, who held social status as elite. He received the highest education that was fancied at the time and served his country as a Naval Lieutenant. He received the purple heart for saving a crew member and acting swiftly under pressure and panic.
You can say that he experienced everything in politics before taking charge of the country. He worked as a journalist, a senator, he ran the House of Representatives, he was a author of published pieces, and many forget that his parents held up quite the political life style. He increased minimum wage and bettered Social Security benefits. He received quite a hard time getting his bills to be passed in Congress but his achievements were quite astonishing: he had a vision of this country and he never stopped until he got that vision and people loved him for that.
His reputation is honestly what made him such the star he is in history and he had his success as the president to back up that stardom.
As early as 6 AM, many civilians returned to the memorial site, where the beloved president was killed to pay their respects and to honor a man who left a everlasting impression, not only on the people around him or who knew him but on a nation and a world, who at the time didn't know what he had in store but believed in a vision that he wanted to desperately believe in.
Dallas has received a lot of blame and heat for being the place where the president who was in his prime was gunned down by just one man. That morning thousands stood mere feet away from where the president had his last event and Dallas hopes that in doing this that the city will be untied from the horrible death of a man in his prime within his life, professionally and personally.
At 12:30 p.m., a moment of silence was asked for throughout the city with bells in toll to maintain the tradition: that marks the time when Kennedy was shot and today we look back at everything he believed in and why we believed in him so much. Elsewhere in Dallas, a brief morning ceremony, including the lowering of a flag to half-staff, was scheduled at Parkland Hospital, where Kennedy died and took his last breathe after being shot and fatally injured.
The Texas Theatre, where police captured Oswald, will screen part of the movie War Is Hell, which was showing when the assassin slipped into the audience without paying on the afternoon of Nov. 22, 1963.
