Overlooked Anniversary

Last week (Nov. 22) marked the 55th anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. You’re excused if you forgot; media acknowledgement was negligible.

The JFK killing should always be with us. It was arguably America’s seminal moment in the 20th century. It was a reminder–before Watergate and the Trump presidency–that we can take nothing for granted just because we are America.
