Kennedy was such a good guy! Why this despicable act? He was the first Catholic President in American history, gunned down in Dallas, Texas on the 22 November 1963. When his brother Robert ran for president in 1968 he too was killed by an assassin’s bullet in a hotel in California. Were the Kennedys doomed? Earlier, civil rights leader Martin Luther King was killed in Memphis, Tennessee by an assassin’s bullet. His famous speech, which still resonates in my mind today, is “I have a dream” Lee Harvey Oswald shot Kennedy while the president was in the …show more content…
He took the presidential oath of office aboard Air Force One as it sat on the runway at Dallas Love Field airport. It wasn’t long after those tragic events that the Beatles appeared on the scene in Liverpool and what a phenomenon that was to be. British bands followed suit and proliferated.

Through the highs, which came with his fame and unlimited excess, Elvis experienced it all with drugs and sex. By the time he died he was over weight, bloated and a spectacle of the once handsome young man. It was an ending in Graceland to the “King of Rock and Roll”. I was named Brian William. Bernard’s middle name was Vincent. We wore bracelets for identification purposes. My mother seems to think that there was a mix up of the bracelets , so it is possible that I could be Bernard!

Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, you are here because one person in this courtroom decided to take law into her own hands. The defendant, Mrs. Dominique Stephens, murdered the man that she vowed to love. This sole act by the defendant is violation of all morals and her husband’s right to live.

All these documents embody the beginning of an admirable presidency and the commencement of a new hope for a nation gone forlorn.

He memorably captured the attention of the entire nation with one of the finest speeches written to date, tugging on the heartstrings and logistically addressing the worries of many Americans.

“If we learn nothing from this tragedy, we learn that life is short and there is no time for hate.” This quote comes from Sandy Dahl , the wife of the pilot on flight 93. When thinking about 9/11 this quote comes to mind because on that particular day, the world was reminded how short life really is. This quote also intertwines with 9/11 because it teaches us how there is no time to hate, but to move forward and help each other hand in hand.

Robert F. Kennedy builds his credibility by relating his personal experience and knowledge of what the audience is feeling to the current events.
