Today marks the 54th anniversary of JFK’s death. Not only was this an event that devastated an entire country but also one that changed the way we value each other forever. We may have lost, in Jackie’s words, “the most visionary president” of the time, but we have NOT lost his determination to improve the future of this great nation.
“A man may die, nations may rise and fall, but an idea lives on.” -John Fitzgerald Kennedy
