How Could I Forget?

JOHN FITZGERALD KENNEDY
November 23, 1963.
Thanks to the Heretik for reminding me.
This bullet is an old one... In the dawn of time it was the stone that Cain hurled at Abel, and in the future it shall be many things that we cannot imagine today, but that will be able to put an end to men and their wondrous, fragile life. “In Memoriam, JFKJorge Luis Borges


But don't go here, unless absolutely nothing makes you ...

Sorry to admit that I too had forgotten. Thank you for the reminder of one of America's most tragic days.

Reading the conspiracy theories, I realize that history has made things much clearer today than existed on the dark days of November 1963.

Have you watched the JFK episode in Altered Statesmen, a docu series showing in Discovery? Startling and apparently historical. An alternative title is: "Junkie on the button." And I mean nuclear!

No haven't seen that. He was not a perfect man. But a whole generation found its ideals in his image. When he died it seemed to end the hope for those ideals to be fulfilled. 42 years later I sometimes wonder if people still have ANY ideals. But I will feel better tomorrow.

Ask not waht the country can do for you but what you can do for your country......

Where in that favor does public service come in?

Ask not what Humanity can do for you, but what you can do for Humanity!
