President John Kennedy’s Birthday

One of America’s best-loved presidents, John Fitzgerald Kennedy, was born into a politically and socially prominent family in Brookline, Massachusetts, on this day in 1917. He was the first American president to be born in the 20th century, he was the youngest man ever elected to the office, and he beat Republican candidate Richard Nixon to become the nation’s 35th president. He would have been 89-years-old today, but he was shot while riding in a convertible in Dallas, Texas, on 22 November 1963, and died 35 minutes later at hospital. He was age 46 when he died.

I wanted to post this information, as President Kennedy was the first president that I remember. I was in fourth grade when he was shot, and I remember that day distinctly. The bell had rung for us to change classrooms, but our teachers were all grouped together in the hallway, and some of them were crying. We finally understood the problem when one teacher turned on a little black-and-white television for us to watch the news. It seemed like the end of the world at the age of nine.
