Someone I Admire: John F. Kennedy
When I was 3 years old John Kennedy was assassinated. I was the same age as his little
boy John Jr. After his death the press wrote and produced shows regarding his life and
presidency. I was influenced by these writings and shows. As a result, John F. Kennedy
(JFK) became a person I admired.
JFK had many accomplishments including:
He was a decorated war hero during World War II;
He started the peace corp.;
And he stood up to the Soviet Union when they placed weapons in Cuba.
Most importantly JFK gave people hope when he spoke. One of his most famous quotes
The energy, the faith, the devotion which we bring to this
endeavour will light our country and all who serve it – and
the glow from that fire can truly light the world. And so
my fellow Americans: ask not what your country can do for
you – ask what you can do for your country.1
JFK’s spirit continues to live. Many of his ideas of hope and change are echoed
by our current President Barack Obama.
