In memory of John Kennedy, My first memory is that of Senator John Fitzgerald Kennedy at the time of the convention on democracy in July 1956. After the convention, my interest in politics resumed for me. My second memory is of him as a candidate for the Democratic nomination for the presidency. It seemed to be a breath of fresh air compared to the national figures I had seen on television, which I had read a lot in the newspapers. I was excited and proud of my party and inspired by this man who, in my opinion, would be the next president and my new commander-in-chief. His death was truly one of the most memorable moments of my life, but his inspiration still lives in me.
