The Assassination of John F. Kennedy -
Today, forty-six years ago, the thirty-fifth President of the United States, John Fitzgerald Kennedy was killed, starting a violent, chaotic decade of change. The United States had experienced nearly a dozen years of peaceful economic expansion. The threat of the 'Cold War', the conflicts in Korea and Vietnam although very real, were a fact of life. President Kennedy's naive approach to relations with the than Soviet Union, gave us a brief glimpse of the foreign policy challenges that Kennedy fumbled. The gravity of his death clouded the deep problems dividing the Democrat party, his unfaithful marriage and his passive action on civil rights.
Today, there are many that do not believe the 'official' version of his murder, and his death remains unsolved. Yet, others have placed him and his presidency above the fray of politics. In Camelot, in myth his life is remembered.
In less than two hundred years of American history, John F. Kennedy was the fourth president assassinated. He was forty-six years old.
