John Fitzgerald Kennedy in happier times
What can be said about the taking of someone from this mortal coil before their natural time?
In the case of former President of the United States John Fitzgerald Kennedy, plenty.
There has been plenty of coverage concerning the man and the legend since his assassination on November 22, 1963; especially now upon the 50th anniversary of his passing.
Many still believe that Lee Harvey Oswald did not act alone. Whether this is true or just a comforting thought, compared to the realization of what one lone gunman managed to do has never been fully proven.
However Kennedy's courage both as a World War 2 veteran and seeing the country through some difficult times as its 35th President cannot be denied.
He was a man of vision, and one can only wonder what he could have accomplished if he had completed his first term, let alone successfully campaigned and won a second in 1964.
