John Fitzgerald Kennedy is definitely one of those politicians who will be remembered throughout history. John Fitzgerald Kennedy was assassinated on November 22, 1963 in Dallas. Sixty years later, US President Joe Biden paid tribute to him, saying that he was a war hero, senator and statesman who marked American history.

Kennedy is certainly one of the most popular presidents in American history. After he passed away, a deep emptiness filled the world, and everyone wept. Kenndy was known for his wisdom and love for the USA. He has always called for patriotism!

"Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future."- Kennedy said. "His death was a defining moment, a loss and a great trauma that shook the soul of our nation," Biden's statement said.

John F. Kennedy and his ideas: Charisma and courage

The former Democratic president, elected in 1960 when he was 43, charted a clear course for the American nation on so many important issues of the 20th century, from civil rights to women's equality to voting rights to wages.

JFK never stopped doing everything he could to build America in accordance with his greatest ideals, said the current US president. Kennedy had great ideas that he wanted to implement in a short period of time. His charisma, boldness, and courage impressed everyone.

A US commission of inquiry concluded in 1964 that JFK was killed by Lee Harvey Oswald, a former Marine living in the Soviet Union, and that he did it alone. But even today there are many theories that dispute these conclusions.

However, many believe that such theories have no foundation and that things are not as complicated as they want to be presented in the media. Many people still talk about Kennedy and remember with joy the period in which he was president.
