"Victura is heeling leeward about twenty-five degrees. Jack is handsome and relaxed, bare feet on the rail, shorts wet with seawater. He’s in his element, confident on his boat. In no need of a handgrip, his hands drape casually over his knees. Jackie’s short, kinky hair is wind-blown, her collar flapping upward, her figure thin and girlish. Her legs are bent away from the rail and one hand tightly grips the mast while her other is apparently holding Jack. She’s less accustomed to sailing, and she betrays perhaps just a hint of insecurity about the heel of the boat […] With beautiful smiles, forward on the bow, sails full of sunlight and air, [they are] the picture of youthful promise."

Peace requires the simple but powerful recognition that what we have in common as human beings is more important and crucial than what divides us.

One of President Kennedy’s most enthusiastic supporters was Prime Minister Harold Macmillan. Their age difference was so great that their relationship was almost that of a father and a son. In fact Macmillan said he not only liked Kennedy but came to love him. Macmillan, after  the Cuban Missile Crisis, claimed that Kennedy “did what we failed to do in the critical year before the two German wars. If Kennedy never did another thing, he assured his place in history by that single act.”

"About 7:15 pm is a good time to call on Daddy. Nearly everybody’s gone home, and you can wear your own bathrobe. He reads a lot of papers, but doesn’t mind if you play quietly under the desk. I call that place "my house," even though my sister Caroline found the secret door first. During the day, I’m pretty busy myself. My nurse Miss Shaw and I go on special trips to the zoo. I love the snakes."

A tear brought to the eye!

  • I just learned something that was very touching. We all know how President Kennedy moved heaven and earth to advance the space program, and Nasa. But his assassination prolonged our dreams for another 6 years. Upon Apollo 11 landing a man on the moon, an unknown person laid a bouquet of flowers on President Kennedy's grave and a note card that said, "Mr. President, the Eagle has landed."
