ESCRIPTION:“John Fitzgerald Kennedy’s contribution to his country will unfold, as President Lincoln’s did, with the passing of time. Every young American felt the spirit of his life and the tragedy of his death.
As President he had but three short years in office, but in that time he presented to the world a picture of America as a youthful, outward-looking nation ready to help men everywhere solve their problems and preserve the peace.
He had a special meaning to American youth. He proved that the younger generation has a special contribution to make to the nation, and it was his hope that our young people would develop their talents to the fullest.
John F. Kennedy is gone, but his radiant example should inspire each of us to achieve and accomplish great things.” (from the preface written by Lyndon B. Johnson)
