                    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
is:

                   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.
