Growing up in the ’60s in America, as children we grew to have a great respect for President John Fitzgerald Kennedy – even if we didn’t really know the details behind the issues. I vividly recall the excitement of his inauguration as an eight-year-old and the fear we felt two years later during the fall Cuban Missile Crisis.
Visiting the JFK Museum in Boston brought it all back, and with immense clarity. The museum is an amazing place, documenting a popular president and highly-respected world leader who accomplished so many goals in his short time which are still impacting us today.
