For those of you that are not old enough to recall that sorrowful day, it was on that date that a mourning nation laid it 35th president, John F. Kennedy to rest. Shot from afar by a disenfranchised mad man in the prime of his life, John was denied the opportunity to set a course that may have been far different than the one that his successor, LBJ, carried out. The iconic image of his 3 year old baby son giving a salute to the horse-drawn casket carrying the body of his fallen father was both heart wrenching and indelible. Surely he was much too young to understand the gravity of the moment. Leaders and heads of state from all over the world attended and expressed their condolences to both is family and to a nation still in shock from the unfathomable event that occurred 3 days prior. That date, November 22, 1963, along with July 4th, 1776, December 7th, 1941. June 6th, 1944, and September 11, 2001, are five dates that will forever live in our nation's history. RIP, Mr. John F. Kennedy.
