Have we Americans ever needed a better moment in our history to look kennedyback upon the legacy of a remarkable President who made us proud? In commemoration of what would have been John Kennedy’s 100th birthday, Caroline Kennedy and her family prepared this brief video that serves as a wonderful reminder of what a brilliant, sophisticated, genuine person and leader their father and grandfather was.

#45 is a painful enigma, a once in a lifetime aberration from which we will hopefully learn much about the inherent weaknesses of a democracy and dangers of political parties and politicians who pander to the worst in us.  If nothing else can be said about John F. Kennedy it would be that he inspired us pursue the highest values and ideals of humanity.  That is the hallmark of a great leader.
