ambassador kennedy

She is still pretty young but starting to look like a looker nonetheless. I think she rather liked me and now I wouldn’t be surprised if she has a thing for me. The knee breeches are cut tight to show off my crotch at its best, and the uniform – worn by everyone but Dad at these court functions – seems to have caught the polite eye of the young heir.
—  22-year-old future President John F. Kennedy, writing in 1939 to his friend (and future U.S. Senator from Rhode Island Claiborne Pell), on his interaction with the 13-year-old future Queen Elizabeth II at a royal function for diplomats hosted by King George VI that JFK attended (in traditional court dress) alongside his father, U.S. Ambassador Joseph P. Kennedy.

Just finished watching all of The Kennedys. It was amazing. Katie wasn’t as bad as I heard. She just didn’t have the accent. But Barry pepper was amazing as bobby. I was so amazed and shocked about how dead on everything with him was. I fell in love. They had parts that really didn’t go the way they really did. Like when JFK was shot they didn’t want the ambassador to know/ tell him but in the movie they have him finding out by the TV. But over all it was amazing.


 25 November 2013: Ambassador Kennedy visited Mangoku-ura Elementary School in Ishinomaki, where the kids helped give her a lesson in Japanese calligraphy. And she also  met with General Toshiaki Tanaka, commander of the JSDF North Eastern Army, and discussed U.S.-Japan security cooperation. Later they visited a restored church that today commemorates U.S.-Japan cooperation during Operation Tomodachi after the 3.11 earthquake. Her husband joined her for the second event
