A Glimpse Of The Past Through The John F. Kennedy Collection - “The most lasting impression of JFK ... is sincerity. Pure and simple, genuine sincerity. He came across as real! No politics as usual, but fresh, real, new, youthful. Nothing else, other than his boyish appearance and vivacious Jacqueline, explains why Kennedy was a president who was idolized by young people. Those who lived through the 1037 days he was in office will always be heavily biased in assessing his actual accomplishments, but it can be accurately stated that he was a very extraordinary individual. In the Boston suburb of Brookline on May 29, 1917, John Fitzgerald Francis Kennedy, was born into a wealthy, well educated family that afforded “Jack” the opportunity of a Harvard (cum laude 1940) education, and the travel and surroundings of influential and important American and world leaders. The tragic death of his brother Joe Jr. during WWII, catapulted him into an almost destined role to come. High points of those who remember those years are the “Ich bin ein Berliner” statement as he viewed the infamous Berlin Wall; the “Ask not what your country can do for you. Ask what you can do for your country!”; the goal of putting an American on the moon within ten years; his heroics with PT-109 in the Solomon Islands; the showdown with Khrushchev and the “Cuban Missile Crisis", and the Peace Corps, the “most admired institution” according to a campus poll. Not only was JFK admired in the United States, his respect was virtually worldwide. His passion became civil rights. When Martin Luther King and his “I have a dream” visited the White House, Kennedy is quoted as saying, “I have a dream - the same dream.” His civil rights bill, sent to Congress, subsequently pushed through by Lyndon Johnson, had real force behind it. This dogged determination cost him popularity, the parallel with Lincoln not going unnoticed. Virtually everyone has been asked, “Where were you on November 22, 1963?” and virtually everyone has a ready answer. In martyrdom, an individual passes from reality to the role that fits the emotional aspirations of those who adored him. Adoration becomes glorification. For those who experienced his passing, we see him bigger than life. If nothing else, he taught us to see things not as they are, but as they could be! For 34 months John Kennedy held the highest office in our land, prodding us to look for the best, to a greater level of excellence. That starlight still shines in the hearts and minds of those who were there.
