Tomorrow, November 22, 2013, marks the 50th anniversary of John F. Kennedy's assassination. I mentioned this in one of My Life's Itinerary So Far-Part 2 entries, because it was one of the major events in my life.
Even though the Cold War was going on and we were on the brink of the Vietnam War, the American public had become enchanted with our new, young president and his wife. Some had compared it to an air of Camelot in our kingdom of the USA. So when Kennedy was assassinated, the walls of our castle came crumbling down.
We probably will never know the full truth of the event. And as the media specials on TV and in the magazines indicate, we have yet to fully recover from the tragedy. Even though JFK wasn't perfect, he was our Royalty and his passing came too soon.
