  2. JFK was an enigma wrapped in a riddle. I was really happy when he was elected (I was ten). When he was murdered, much of my innocence vanished. When his brother was murdered, I was forever changed. Nowadays, my trust is really hard to come by.

  3. Amazing quote by a brilliant human being. This is one of my JFK favs, “As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest form of appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.” These two go well together, I think.
