Anniversary of Kennedy Assassination Resurrects Fond Memories

Posted on December 19, 2013 by


On 22 November 1963, John Fitzgerald Kennedy was shot. He was in Dallas, Texas, campaigning for next year’s upcoming election. Kennedy was shot by Lee Harvey Oswald. A Dallas policeman was also shot in the confusion.

“I was in school, in fourth grade, and we got an announcement.  All I remember was my teacher started to cry,” secretary Arlene Bonanni said.

John F. Kennedy was born on 29 May 1917 in Brookline, Massachusetts. He went to college at Princeton University. He served as the 35th president of the United States from January 1961 until the day he died.

“It was my senior year in high school, and our principle came on the loudspeaker and told us about the tragedy that had happened. I was more shocked, and it felt unreal to me,” Library aid Manice Peace said.

Kennedy had three children, John F. Kennedy Jr., Caroline Kennedy, and Patrick Kennedy. The Kennedy’s had an alleged curse called the “Kennedy Curse” because all the boys in the family never lived long. J.F.K was 46 when he died, J.F.K Jr. lived until he was 38, and Patrick only lived until 2.

“I believe it was a conspiracy, that the government set it all up like it was supposed to happen,” office Secretary April Garrett said.

Jacqueline Kennedy was John’s wife. John and Jacqueline we married for eight years. They were the youngest president and first lady in American history. The first lady remarried five years later to Aristotle Socrates Onassis.

The death of John F. Kennedy was a tragedy all across the world. Some say he died from a criminal conspiracy. Some say Lee Oswald just did not like him. All these questions were never answered, but debates rage on today about the mysterious murder.

“They covered it up.  The secret service actually killed J.F.K. They needed to protect the secret service by covering everything up,” Librarian Kirby Barnett said.

It has been said that Lee Oswald did not actually kill Kennedy, and his shot hit the president in a spot that was not fatal. Rumors say the car in the back of Kennedy was the secret service, and they pressed on the break as the agent accidentally shot the president in the neck, which was fatal. If true, the Secret Service covered it up from the fear of getting in trouble.
