John F. Kennedy
On November 22, 1963, John Fitzgerald Kennedy was killed by an assassin's bullets as his motorcade wound through Dallas, Texas. Kennedy was the youngest man elected President; he was the youngest to die.
John was born in Brookline, Massachusetts, on May 29, 1917. Graduating from Harvard in 1940, he entered the Navy. In 1943, when his PT boat was rammed and sunk by a Japanese destroyer, Kennedy, despite grave injuries, led the survivors through perilous waters to safety.
Back from the war, he became a Democratic Spokesperson from the Boston area, advancing in 1953 to the Senate. He married Jacqueline Bouvier on September 12, 1953. In 1955, while regaining health from a back operation, he wrote a book called “Profiles in Courage”, which won the Pulitzer Prize in history.
In 1956 Kennedy almost gained the Democratic nomination for Vice President, and four years later was a first-ballot nominee for President. Millions watched his television debates with the Republican candidate, Richard M. Nixon. Winning by a narrow margin in the popular vote, Kennedy became the first Roman Catholic President
When the Russians now sought to install nuclear missiles in Cuba. When this was discovered by air reconnaissance in October 1962, President Kennedy imposed quarantine on all offensive weapons bound for Cuba. While the world trembled on the birth of nuclear war, the Russians backed down and agreed to take the missiles away. The American response to the Cuban crisis evidently persuaded Moscow of the lack of nuclear blackmail.
Kennedy now contended that both sides had a vital interest in stopping the spread of nuclear weapons and slowing the arms race--a contention which led to the test ban treaty of 1963. The months after the Cuban crisis showed significant progress toward his goal of "a world of law and free choice, banishing the world of war and coercion." His administration thus saw the beginning of new hope for both the equal rights of Americans and the peace of the world.
Some of Kennedy’s quotes were
Geography has made us neighbors. History has made us friends. Economics has made us partners, and necessity has made us allies. Those whom God has so joined together, let no man put asunder
Do not pray for easy lives. Pray to be stronger men
My fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.
Some reasons why I think that John F. Kennedy is like Jesus because of the fact of his compassion towards the people in Austin, Texas John was suppose to show for a conference like a photo shoot but he stayed said a speech let the first ladies say a speech then he shook every ones hands because Jesus had turn 2 fish into 200 fish and 5 bread into 500 bread as well as when he turned the water into wine for a wedding.
