On November 22, 1963 time froze when the beloved John F. Kennedy was tragically taken from this world. We will be looking at two accounts of the assassination, the first will be the official account AKA, the Warren commission 's report. The second will be from Doug Horne and his 5 volume work with the Assassination Records Review Board. After we have looked at the two accounts I will then tell you what I believe happened.
John F. Kennedy, the 35th United States President, was assassinated on November 22, 1963 during a parade while he and his wife were visiting Dallas, Texas. The Warren Commission has concluded that Lee Harvey Oswald, a lone shooter, was the man who committed the crime. Over the years after Kennedy’s death, people have come up with other ideas of why and how this president died. One of many conspiracies was made by his wife, Jacqueline Kennedy, saying that Vice President Lyndon B. Johnson had something to do with it. She believed that he wanted to become the president so badly that he would kill to get it. In this conspiracy, it is said that Johnson hired two men to assassinate John F. Kennedy. At least one of the gunmen was supposedly waiting in the
“Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past or the present will certain to miss the future.” -John F. Kennedy
Many conspiracies have taken place within government, but none of them have been more serious then JFK assassination. When JFK had fired its director and other agents, the CIA was scared that Kennedy would take down the CIA permently, he believed to be an extremely terrible agency under the government. The shooter, Lee Harvey Oswald, who was in the marines at one point was planted into the biggest CIA camp somewhere in the Asian pacific and had been wanting to attend the CIA. Apparently he was the guy for the job. Many critics say that Lee Harvey Oswald might have been brain washed by the CIA. For most people, the assassination of JFK marks this down as the biggest incident that has changed this country.
Robert Kennedy’s speech was given during a campaign rally in 1968, he broke the news to a crowd of supporters that MLK had been killed. This speech was analyzed through a PDF copy of the text.
On April 4, 1968, Robert F. Kennedy was in Indianapolis for a campaign stop, when he received news that Martin Luther King was killed, causing Kennedy to write and deliver a speech regarding the assassination. This speech was succinct but not only was it about the assassination, it was also to tell the people there is still wisdom and hope in this time of turmoil. To reach this purpose, he first builds up his ethos, uses pathos to add mood and hope, and unifies the people. The combination of these elements makes it a very powerful and memorable speech.
John F. Kennedy was a well know person in the United States. He was America 's 35th President from January 20, 1961 to November 22, 1963. Sadly his life was cut short in a trip to Dallas, Texas. The gunman was later founded and arrested but never stood trial because he was later killed. FBI release that it was a lone gunman work but many people say that there was another person involved in another build. The killer Lee Harvey Oswald who was an american sniper. Is it conspiracy or actual true that it was a lone gunman? Many articles, book, and people say it was a conspiracy by the FBI which I agree for many reason.
Robert F. Kennedy developed his argument about Martin Luther 's King 's assassination by giving details about somethings Martin Luther King Jr wanted to do for people. One thing is that he didn 't put Martin Luther King 's real speech, but he did an excellent thing by informing those who didn 't know about Martin 's assassination. For example one of the things he wanted to change was that all black people should have the same rights as all white people. I agree with this because no one should be treated differently everyone should be at a equal place. He had a dream that he would change all this cruelty for the best!
At 11:35 A.M. Air Force One landed. Crowds had gathered at the landing site to show support for Kennedy’s re-election. Although this concerned the secret service the first family was unfazed. Mrs. Kennedy was given a dozen red roses and the first family preceded to shake hands and greet the crowd. At 11:35 the Kennedy’s along with Texas governor, John Connally, and his wife began the half hour drive through Dallas. President Kennedy ordered for the tops of the cars be down and for secret service to stay in the follow up car instead of running besides the Kennedys so that the people could see Jackie. The people spilled into the streets and the driver tried to separate the president from the people putting Jackie against the crowd. Hill ran
Many people know about the assassination of John F. Kennedy. What day it was on, where he was, and who he was with. But did you know that the main suspect for the murder, Lee Harvey Oswald, was also assassinated two days after the killing of John F. Kennedy. Lee Harvey Oswald’s assassination by Jack Ruby was unjustified because he did not have the ability to defend himself, however, the killing of Oswald exposed the idea that the assassination was a much more organized plan to end JFK’s presidency.
“The man with fewer than three and a half years to live has his left hand on the Bible.” Not even a page into this book really gets you to think that everything can change in an instance. I feel that O’Reilly chose those words to stick out to people because time is never promised, tomorrow may never come. This book stood out to me from the very beginning. Not only did Killing Kennedy capture my attention with the first sentence, but it was an eye opener and gave me a new perspective on life. Within the first few pages i was sucked into 1963 into the crowd while JFK was giving his inaugural speech. O’Reillys’ writing really draws you in and takes you by the hand and guides you through the life of our 34th president, John

In Wednesday Wars by Gary Schmidt, the Hoodhood family consists of Mr. and Mrs. Hoodhood, Heather, and Holling. Every night at five-o'clock the Hoodhood family watches the news and anchoring the news is Walter Cronkite. Mr. Hoodhood does not speak to anyone about the topic of the events on the news. He does not speak to his wife about it nor even his own son. Cronkite has to announce devastating events on the air. Another thing that Walter Cronkite announces about the Vietnam War is that one of the lieutenants is missing. The lieutenant happens to be Mrs. Baker’s husband, Lieutenant Baker. I will be exploring the topics of Walter Cronkite on the news, the greatest and hardest things Walter had to announce on the air, and his legacy.
John F Kennedy was a level headed, determined and well accomplished person. During his short-lived presidency, he had to take on challenges like no other and did it with sophistication and grace. From conflicts involving other countries, like Vietnam, to the Civil Rights Movement that directly affected our own country, Kennedy continued to take each problem day by day until there was an overall improvement or resolution. It would be safe to say that he is one of the more progressive presidents our country has ever seen.
Robert Francis Kennedy gave one of the most important speeches of American history in the twentieth century. This speech, given just hours after the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. was one that had a tremendous impact on those who listened. Even today this speech has a timeless aura about it considering that this country still faces racial tension and violence every day.
