John Fitzgerald Kennedy was born on May 29, 1917 and died on November 22, 1963. Many referred to him by his initials JFK and knew of his wife, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. John was served as the 35th President of the United States and was assassinated while in office by Lee Harvey Oswald.
I suppose that every politician has some great quotes because they are in the business to sell themselves and to try to sell themselves to us to rule or preside over us as our leader if elected and getting the votes. I didn’t live in the day and life of John F. Kennedy but I did hear quite a lot about him as I grew up so I thought I would honor our 35th President on the date of his birth. This first quote sounds like something I’ve said and maybe I had heard it in history class because it’s part of history and very philosophical and true. The one thing we cannot change or control is that nothing is certain. It is a profound statement, we know this in our lives so many things change and so many things have changed since JFK was in office and they continue to.
John definitely has had some very iconic, repeated quotes and this might be one of the most famous quotes about not asking what your country can do for you but what you can do for your country. I think that many of us at times, myself included have forgotten what I can do for others and that is something that we have had to learn during this pandemic with CO-VID19 is learn what we can do for our country but not just our country but the world because the entire world is going through this. We’re all in this together. We all have to try to do our part to uplift each other, support each other and figure what is the best way to move forward together.
Change is something that is constant and happening all the time and we have to roll with those changes. I think we do or should look to the past to find mistakes or similarities and sometimes get ideas and seek out those trendsetters in the now that might see what others don’t so that we can go into the future together.
What John was trying to say I believe is that in order to show our appreciation for what we have learned from whomever we have learned it from instead of just a thank you actually doing the things you learned and living those things and that is a greater way to express gratitude for what you’ve been taught.
