“And so, my fellow Americans: ask not what your country can do for you – ask what you can do for your country. My fellow citizens of the world: ask not what America will do for you, but what together we can do for the freedom of man.”

When I visited Washington, D.C. some years ago, I have a chanced visited President John Fitzgerald “Jack” Kennedy’s gravesite or popular with JFK at Arlington National Cemetery, where his brother Robert Kennedy former Attorney General of USA and JFK’s wife Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis was buried also adjacent to John F Kennedy’s gravesite. John F Kennedy’s gravesite is famous with it’s The Eternal Flame, I think the only one gravesite with The Eternal Flame in Arlington National Cemetery.

John F Kennedy was born on 29th May 1917 at Brookline Massachusetts, a second son of Joseph P Kennedy senior and was the 35th President of The United States of America, serving from 1961 until his assassination on 22nd November 1963.
John F Kennedy-JFK was assassinated in Dallas, Texas, on his state visit with his wife Jacqueline. Lee Harvey Oswald was charged with crime and was murdered two days later by Jack Ruby before he could be put on trial, you could read conspiracy theory.
John F Kennedy was my idol since I was a little boy, I read the story about his heroism and patriotic action during the world war 2, that way I always remember him and I was cried when I heard that Kennedy was murdered. I never forget when his little son John John gave a military salute to the President cascades on his funeral procession.
On August 2nd, 1943 Kennedy’s boat the PT 109 was rammed by Japanese destroyer in Pacific Ocean, Kennedy swam towing a wounded man to an island and later to the second island, for his patriotic and heroism Kennedy received The United States of America’s Navy and Marine Corp Medal.
