Today, 11/22/16, is the 53rd anniversary of the assassination of President John Fitzgerald Kennedy.  President Kennedy was the first Irish Catholic president elected.  He was also the youngest president to live in the White House.  He and his family brought youth and a new hope to America.  We reveled at watching his children play and run throughout the White House.  American women admired his lovely wife Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy.  She brought with her a sense of style and class.  The Kennedy presidency, although short was one of progressiveness. 
While riding in a car in Dallas Texas, he was shot and killed by Lee Harvey Oswald.  America sat in stunned silence and grieved.  Today, we remember this charismatic president, and if you ask anyone who was alive on this date they will tell you , "Yes, I remember exactly where I was, and what I was doing  when President Kennedy was killed."
***School will not be in session until Monday in observance of Thanksgiving.  For those who celebrate this holiday, we wish you a happy, safe and fun filled holiday.  Take a minute and think of all the people and things in your life that you are grateful for.  ENJOY!!
