John F Kennedy for those of us who admired him, he will always be young and always be full of promise. How different the World may have been.
Today is the 101st birthday of the 35th president: JFK. Upon accepting the New York Liberal Party nomination in 1960, he is quoted as saying:
If by a “Liberal” they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people — their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights, and their civil liberties — someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what they mean by a “Liberal,” then I’m proud to say I’m a “Liberal.”
The world is a better place because he was in it and still feels the loss that he has left.
