Remembering the United States 35th President….President John F. Kennedy

On Friday, November 22, 2013, the day began with flags lowered to half-staff on every government building In Remembrance of President John F. Kennedy being assassinated on November 22, 1963. In Dallas, Texas where the city still mourns after 50 years, a ceremonial event in Dealey Plaza where President Kennedy was assassinated became filled with people and invited guests and at 12:30 PM there was a request for a moment of silence throughout the nation. There were other commemorations Friday, including wreath-laying events in Kennedy’s hometown of Boston, Massachusetts and at his Arlington National Cemetery gravesite where his sister Jean Kennedy Smith, participated in the Arlington wreath-laying. President Kennedy’s granddaughter Tatiana Schlossberg attended a ceremony at the JFK memorial in Runnymede, England. The white markings in the street in Dealey Plaza where the motorcade traveled as to the point where President Kennedy was shot has disappeared this week amid road work in advance of the 50th anniversary of Kennedy’s death. The “X” was a popular photo site for visitors to the City of Dallas in this busy intersection. Many of our favorite photo reflections of Kennedy is of his son John F. Kennedy, Jr. standing at attention while saluting his Father as the casket was wheeled in front of him as he stood alongside his Mother Jacqueline and his sister Caroline. Another photo is of John, Jr. playing in the Oval Office underneath his Father’s desk.
